About the 2022 Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium

The 2022 Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium invited those who have participated in the program’s more than 80 funded projects to build on their collective experiences. The event created opportunities for reflection on the current state and future potential of digitization practice in collecting institutions, including how the digital cultural record can better reflect the diversity of human thought and experience, how law and ethics affect strategies for access, and how technologies and standards can improve discovery and learning.

The symposium, which was open to the public, was the third in-person gathering related to CLIR’s Hidden Collections programs.
