Virtual Symposium: 3-2-1 Report

Hi everyone! I decided to use a 3-2-1 report to synthesize what I have learned during this wonderful semester. In my presentation I describe 3 “aha” moments I had while learning in this class, 2 amazing ideas I’ve come across during the modules, and 1 thing I will do now that I have taken this course. The PDF of the transcript is attached to this post, and I have also created subtitles on the video itself. Thank you so much for watching!

Director’s Brief – Community Memory: Insights into memory labs and digitization efforts across the globe

Memory labs have been exploding in popularity across the globe. With the digitization efforts of cultural and family histories comes the integration of technology to bring access of these cultural artifacts to the patrons of libraries everywhere. This report looks at the global trend of digitizing cultural and community memory. It also reviews insights from DC Public Library’s Memory Lab efforts and proposes a way in which the Erie County Public Library can harness the global trend and create a Memory Lab paired with technology to preserve and share Erie County’s community memory.
