Across disciplines, new types of digital collections are changing the way we access and preserve information. While scholars, data curators, librarians, archivists, and preservationists all approach digital collections in their work, key questions remain as to how to conceptualize and collaborate in our efforts. This event gathers scholars and practitioners from libraries, archives, data curation and digital humanities to discuss the challenges of 21st Century digital collections.
