Community of Practice

Expertise to preserve history

We will convene a group of librarians and archivists to promote a community of practice which will build a collective knowledge and promote best practices in developing a national Latino digital heritage. This community of practice will be a venue for viewing video presentations of model Latino-focused archival efforts, presentations on emerging national digital archival practices and platforms, best practices, and existing national digital initiatives such as the Digital Public Library of America and the HathiTrust. Video conferencing sessions will be held to establish a dialogue with existing national digital library initiatives where they will highlight their initiatives and participate in discussions leading to collaboration.

The following video of Mukurtu is an example of how we plan to preview and demonstrate various platforms that are being used for building diverse digital archives.
