"The Digital Dig Continued: ArchaeoCore and the Preservation of Site Metadata"


This session, the second in a series, will bring to light important archives associated with archaeological excavations traditionally sponsored by academic institutions. These archives, largely hidden to all but a handful of scholars and usually known primarily by word of mouth, are now being made visible through the use of new technologies and creative collaborations among and within the sponsoring institutions. Speakers will present case studies detailing those collaborations among library, technical services, and digital media staffs that bring these important records to a wider scholarly audience.
