Digitize and/or Destroy
William Denton, web librarian, Adam Lauder, W.P. Scott Chair for Research in e-Librarianship and Lisa Sloniowski, English literature librarian, York University
Recognizing the role of libraries and archives in cultural production as well as in organizing and preserving material artifacts, this piece seeks to lay bare the everyday practices of digital preservation while at the same time producing a new digital corpus for future reuse and remixing.
