Historical Reminiscents Podcast EP 55: Community Based Digitization
In this episode I discuss the recent conclusion of the “Healing and Education Through Digital Access” project undertaken by the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre. I talk about community engagement, how not all information wants to be free, and online access.
I would love to hear about your experiences working with community to undertake a digitization project. Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.

Tara Robertson, “Not All Information Wants to be Free: The Case Study of On Our Backs”
A huge thank you to my colleague Jenna Lemay who did much of the heavy lifting on this project and who was responsible for developing the metadata for the Letter Books.
