The Authenticity Project, an initiative from the Digital Library Federation, is hosting a two-day virtual event on April 6-7, 2023, from 11:00 am – 4:30 pm EST. Featured speakers include Loretta Parham, CEO and Library Director of the AUC-Robert W. Woodruff Library, and Lopez Matthews, Jr., the State Archivist and Public Records Administrator of the Government of the District of Columbia. From the event page:
Join us for this two day virtual event where we seek to interrogate ways digital libraries at all institutions might better represent diverse communities and experiences through collections, how technology may be furthering bias and performative diversity work, and what authentic partnerships might look like between HBCUs and other organizations, including predominantly white institutions.
The event is free, but registration is required.
