A DH seminar was completed yesterday with the visit at the Knutdzon room of the Gunnerus library which is part of the collection received as a gift in 1869 by Broder Lysholm Knutdzon. We would like to thank all scholars that participated from Norway and abroad and say that the purpose was to create a common ground of understanding of the tools and the research variation in the field. We invited scholars with many years of experience in the field to pose questions, share reflections and name challenges. The purpose of the seminar was to establish an academic forum where we can actually discuss further issues connected to all of the above in our research and try to address common challenges connected to as for example infrastructure compatibilities, long-term sustainability of the digital archiving methods, availability to the communities and the public, ethics in relation to disseminating strategies, issues connected to inclusion and diversity on the access of those archives in general. We discussed also strategies of outreach activities that will make our research relevant to the society we are a part of, either the academic or the general one. Many of these issues definitely need to be discussed more and we must continue to challenge ourselves as academic scholars but as conscious citizens too.
Thank you all for you contributions!
Here come the DH seminar presentations
Here come some pictures from the event, and I will soon be sharing the presentations as well!
