  • Write Us into the Story

    • Authors: Shelley Sweeney; Cheryl Avery
      Abstract: Archivists need to increase public understanding, support, and engagement in archives to enable archives to fulfil their missions. As one way to increase support, archives have increasingly carved out time and resources for various types of outreach. One important audience that has long been acknowledged is children. In the past, archivists have visited classrooms, brought children to archives, and prepared kits of archival facsimiles or surrogates on websites for children to use with the guidance of teachers. But another way to reach children includes narratives in books, films, and television directed at children. This article explores a number of titles to see whether archives and archivists are accurately portrayed in the narratives. The numbers are few, and the portrayals are generally weak. Two exceptions were books created by an archivist and commissioned by an archives. These two approaches led to significant works that enhance children’s understanding of archives and archivists and lead the way as examples for future archival endeavours to emulate. RÉSUMÉ Les archivistes doivent faire croître la compréhension, le soutien et l’engagement du public à l’égard des archives pour permettre à celles-ci de remplir leur mission. Pour accroître ce soutien, les archives consacrent de plus en plus de temps et de ressources à divers types d’actions de sensibilisation. Un public important, reconnu depuis longtemps, est celui des enfants. Par le passé, les archivistes ont visité des classes, amené des enfants aux archives et préparé des trousses de reproductions d’archives ou de substituts sur des sites web pour que les enfants puissent les utiliser avec l’aide d’enseignants. Mais une autre façon d’atteindre les enfants est d’utiliser des récits dans des livres, des films et des émissions de télévision destinés aux enfants. Cet article explore un certain nombre de titres pour voir si les archives et les archivistes sont dépeints correctement dans ces récits. Les chiffres sont bas, et les représentations sont généralement faibles. Deux exceptions : des livres créés par un archiviste et commandés par un service d’archives. Ces deux approches ont donné lieu à des ouvrages importants qui permettent aux enfants de mieux comprendre les archives et les archivistes et qui constituent des exemples à suivre pour les futures initiatives en matière d’archives.

  • “I Can’t Wait for You to Die”

    • Authors: Harrison Apple
      Abstract: Stemming from conflicts over the authority of professional archives to arrange and steward community knowledge, this article outlines the limitations of the archival apparatus to produce the conditions for social liberation through acquisition and offers suggestions for how to operate otherwise, as a collaborator in forgetting. It discusses the origins and revised mission of the Pittsburgh Queer History Project (PQHP) as a reflection of the precarious definition of community archives within the discipline and field of archival science. By retracing the steps in the PQHP’s mission, as it moved from being a custodial and exhibit-focused collecting project to acting as a decentralized mobile preservation service, I argue that community archival practice is an important standpoint from which to critically reassess the capacity of institutional archives to create a more conscious and complete history through broader collecting. Specifically, I demonstrate how contemporary attention to the value of community records and community archives is frequently accompanied by a demand for such archives, records, and communities to confess precarity and submit to institutional recordkeeping practices. RÉSUMÉ Tirant ses origines des conflits portant sur la compétence des archives professionnelles pour arranger et gérer les savoirs communautaires, cet article souligne les limites des techniques en archivistiques à produire les conditions pour la libération sociale par l’acquisition et offre des suggestions sur des façons d’opérer autrement, en tant que collaborateur de l’oubli. Il aborde les origines et le mandat révisé du Pittsburgh Queer History Project (PQHP) comme reflet de la définition précaire des archives communautaires au sein de la discipline et du domaine de l’archivistique. En retraçant les étapes du mandat du PQHP, qui est passé d’un projet de collecte axé sur la gestion de la collection et les expositions à un service de préservation mobile décentralisé, j’avance que les pratiques des archives communautaires offrent un point de vue important à partir duquel réévaluer de manière critique la capacité des archives institutionnelles à créer une histoire plus consciente et plus complète grâce à une collecte plus large. Plus précisément, je démontre comment l’attention contemporaine portée à la valeur des documents et des archives communautaires s’accompagne fréquemment d’une demande pour que ces archives, documents et communautés avouent leur précarité et se soumettent aux pratiques institutionnelles de tenue de documents.

  • Archival Readiness

    • Authors: Alison Turner
      Abstract: This article explores the challenges of engaging historically excluded communities with archives and archival discourse, focusing on people and communities experiencing homelessness. Positioning the phrase literal homelessness, which is used in the United States to determine eligibility for an annual census of people experiencing homelessness, as representative of ongoing exclusive and non-collaborative forms of recordkeeping, the author proposes a concept that she calls archival readiness to move toward archive making, rather than archive taking, with historically excluded communities. Using her experiences as a part-time staff member in a temporary emergency shelter that was established during the COVID-19 pandemic, she shows how archival readiness, based on ongoing relationships among archivists, researchers, community organizations, and individuals, would increase the likelihood that shelter guests would participate in archiving. Exploring how homelessness creates challenges for the development of inclusive institutional and community-archiving praxes, she argues that while archival readiness would not solve each of these challenges, it could enable historically excluded communities to participate in generating other approaches. The author enacts archival readiness by sharing three records from the shelter and her interpretations of them, introducing forms of information about shelter living that is not collected in official data that tracks “literal homelessness.” RÉSUMÉ Cet article explore les défis de l’engagement des communautés historiquement exclues avec les archives et le discours archivistique, en se concentrant sur les personnes et les communautés itinérantes. Posant l’expression « itinérance littérale », utilisée aux États-Unis pour déterminer l’admissibilité à un recensement annuel des personnes en état d’itinérance, comme représentative des formes exclusives et non collaboratives de tenue de documents, l’auteure propose un concept qu’elle appelle « préparation archivistique » pour tendre vers la création d’archives, plutôt que la collecte d’archives, avec les communautés historiquement exclues. S’appuyant sur son expérience en tant que membre du personnel à temps partiel d’un refuge d’urgence temporaire créé pendant la pandémie de COVID-19, elle montre comment la préparation archivistique, fondée sur des relations permanentes entre archivistes, chercheurs, organismes communautaires et individus, augmenterait la probabilité que les clients du refuge participent à l’archivage. Explorant la manière dont l’itinérance crée des défis pour le développement de pratiques d’archivage institutionnelles et communautaires inclusives, elle soutient que si la préparation à l’archivage ne résoudrait pas chacun de ces défis, elle pourrait permettre aux communautés historiquement exclues de participer à faire émerger d’autres approches. L’auteure illustre la préparation archivistique en partageant trois documents du refuge et ses interprétations de ceux-ci, introduisant des formes d’informations sur la vie en refuge qui ne sont pas collectées dans les données officielles qui documentent « l’itinérance littérale ».

  • Archival Interventions and Disentangling Legacy Records

    • Authors: Sarah Cook
      Abstract: Appraisal and disposition of government records at Library and Archives Canada (LAC) focuses primarily on acquiring the “right” records to best document a given function of the Government of Canada. Once records pass into LAC’s care, access is provided through an inconsistent approach of online descriptive records and on-site finding aids, often with minimal or incorrect contextualizing information that hinders their overall discoverability and use. Through a study of both the legacy photographic records in the National Film Board of Canada Fonds and the recontextualization project currently underway at LAC, the author examines the history of the record, from recordkeeping practices to the transfer to LAC, and some of the interventions by the archives to describe and shape these records over several generations of custodial care. All of these various actions have had a hidden impact on the use and understanding of both the individual records and the larger collection. This article provides a case study in how rearrangement based on research into creators, organizational recordkeeping systems, and archival custodial practices can draw out complex, multiple provenances and provide researchers with a fuller contextual history of the record. RÉSUMÉ L’évaluation et la disposition des documents gouvernementaux à Bibliothèque et Archives Canada (BAC) visent principalement à acquérir les « bons » documents pour mieux documenter une fonction donnée du gouvernement du Canada. Une fois les documents confiés à BAC, l’accès est offert par une approche non uniforme de fiches descriptives en ligne et d’instruments de recherche sur place, souvent accompagnés d’informations contextuelles minimales ou incorrectes qui nuisent à leur découverte et à leur utilisation. En étudiant à la fois les documents photographiques du Fonds de l’Office national du film du Canada et le projet de recontextualisation actuellement en cours à BAC, l’auteure étudie l’histoire des documents, depuis les pratiques de tenue de documents jusqu’au transfert à BAC, et certaines des interventions des archives pour décrire et façonner ces documents sur plusieurs générations de travail de gestion de la collection. Toutes ces actions ont eu une incidence cachée sur l’utilisation et la compréhension des documents individuels et de la collection dans son ensemble. Cet article présente une étude de cas qui montre comment un réarrangement fondé sur des recherches sur les créateurs, les systèmes de tenue de documents des organisations et les pratiques de conservation des archives peut faire ressortir des provenances complexes et multiples et fournir aux chercheurs une histoire contextuelle plus complète du document.

  • The Art of Digital Curation

    • Authors: Colin Post
      Abstract: Artists have long engaged with digital and networked technologies in critical and creative ways to explore both new art forms and novel ways of disseminating artworks. Net-based artworks are often created with the intent to circulate outside traditional institutional spaces, and many are shared via artist-run platforms that involve curatorial practices distinct from those of museums or commercial galleries. This article focuses on a particular artist-run platform called Paper-Thin, characterizing the activities involved in managing the platform as digital curation in a polysemous sense – as both the curation of digital artworks and the stewardship of digital information in a complex technological ecosystem. While scholars and cultural heritage professionals have developed innovative preservation strategies for digital and new media artworks housed in institutional collections, the ongoing care of artworks shared through networked alternative spaces is largely carried out co-operatively by the artists and curators of these platforms. Drawing on Howard Becker’s sociological theory of art worlds as networks of co-operative actors, this article describes the patterns of co-operative work involved in creating, exhibiting, and then caring for Net-based art. The article outlines the importance, for cultural heritage professionals, of understanding the digital-curation practices of artists, as these artist-run networked platforms demonstrate emergent approaches to the stewardship of digital culture that move beyond a custodial paradigm. RÉSUMÉ Les artistes utilisent depuis longtemps les technologies numériques et en réseau de manière critique et créative pour explorer de nouvelles formes d’art et de nouveaux modes de diffusion des oeuvres d’art. Les oeuvres d’art en ligne sont souvent créées dans l’intention de les voir circuler en dehors des espaces institutionnels traditionnels, et nombre d’entre elles sont partagées via des plateformes gérées par des artistes, lesquelles nécessitent des pratiques de conservation différentes de celles des musées ou des galeries commerciales. Cet article se penche sur une plateforme spécifique gérée par des artistes appelée Paper-Thin et qualifie les activités impliquées dans la gestion de la plateforme de conservation numérique dans un sens polysémique – à la fois la conservation d’oeuvres d’art numériques et l’intendance de l’information numérique dans un écosystème technologique complexe. Alors que les universitaires et les professionnels du patrimoine culturel ont développé des stratégies de préservation innovantes pour les oeuvres d’art numériques et sur nouveaux médias conservés dans des collections institutionnelles, l’entretien continu des oeuvres d’art partagées via ces espaces alternatifs en réseau est en grande partie réalisé conjointement par les artistes et les conservateurs de ces plateformes. S’inspirant de la théorie sociologique d’Howard Becker sur les mondes de l’art comme réseaux d’acteurs coopératifs, cet article décrit les schémas du travail coopératif engagés dans la création, l’exposition et l’entretien de l’art en ligne. L’article souligne l’importance, pour les professionnels du patrimoine culturel, de comprendre les pratiques de curation numérique des artistes, car ces plateformes en réseau gérées par des artistes démontrent des approches émergentes de l’intendance de la culture numérique qui vont au-delà du paradigme de la conservation.
