Information and Memory Infrastructure Development: Supporting Resilient Communities and Community-based Scholarship Through Community-centric Recordkeeping and Archival Research, Education and Practice,
2-5.30pm 6 November 2012

Facilitators: Anne Gilliland and Michael Wartenbe, UCLA, Sue McKemmish, Monash University Australia, Kelly Besser, UCLA Library

The rapidly developing Community Archives movement, with its focus on community-centric information and memory infrastructure, has important areas of overlap with Community Informatics. New approaches to archival research, education and practice that support community-based scholarship provide an alternative lens for looking at Community Informatics research, education and practice. Community Informatics researchers will gain new insights into the characteristics, motivations and interests of diverse, often underrepresented communities that are particularly relevant to community-centric approaches to information management. Consideration of these characteristics, motivations and interests may also yield useful approaches for Community Informatics.
