Location: Indiana Historical Society, Indianapolis, IN
Innovative educational strategies have revolutionized how books and archival materials are experienced by diverse audiences, as a variety of communication styles and learning preferences are considered. Digitization, behind-the scenes tours, and adaptive exhibition environments relay the story for all. Even the work of conservators and librarians may be presented as part of the storytelling, as creative approaches to accessibility and collections care evolve. Yet, these approaches may seem at odds with preservation. The need for accessibility in libraries and archives requires a delicate balance between preservation and making materials available and understandable to a large audience with diverse needs. Strategies for promoting access with responsible stewardship in libraries and archives is the focus of this conference.
This two-day conference includes the opportunity to participate in Indiana Experience at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center.
Topics include:
  • Security issues in public access
  • Digitization as access
  • Opening special collections for audiences beyond researchers
  • Sensory stimulation and visitor experience
  • Increasing understanding of collections stewardship
