From Paper and Paint to Pixels: Preserving and Providing Access to Born Digital Literature

As part of a new series of speaking events, the Section on Archives of Literature and Art (International Council on Archives) is presenting a panel discussion on preserving and providing access to born digital literature and art. The panel features scholars whose work engages with these issues in the areas of born digital literary archives and interactive media. Topics covered will include innovative preservation methods used for born digital literary archives and electronic literature. Speakers will also address methodologies for accessing and incorporating these unique cultural heritage objects into research. Approaches include using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make born-digital cultural records more accessible to the research community and creating virtual spaces for born-digital literature.
