Indigitization Futures Forum in the BCLA Journal

June’s Indigitization Futures Forum is featured in this month’s journal of the British Columbia Library Association, as an article created by Sustaining Information Practices Research Assistants, Michelle Kaczmarek and Emily Guerrero, available via the BCLA website.

The article, entitled Five cohorts of Indigitization project participants unite for inaugural Indigitization Futures Forum at UBC provides an overview of the intent, content, and successes of the weekend, addressing each panel and discussion in turn. It speaks to the knowledge and wisdom gleamed from speakers such as Marvin Williams from Lake Babine and Sherry Stump from the Tsilhqot’in Nation, and gives readers the opportunity to learn more about Indigitization within the context of the forum.

In the authors’ words, the Indigenous Futures Forum  “provided space to discuss past and future projects, share knowledge and best practices, and to work together to envision future paths for the community-based digitization work that Indigitization supports.” Their article extends that discussion space to Information Professionals across British Columbia and has the potential to prompt further dialogue around best practice within information institutions.
