Dear Colleagues,

Please mark your calendars for *Reimagining Access: Inclusive Technology
for Archives & Special Collections**,* an Institute of Museum and Library
Services (IMLS) funded symposium hosted by ArtCenter College of Design.

The ArtCenter Library, in conjunction with Interaction Design Department
and Designmatters, invites you to a symposium exploring how designers can
work with people with disabilities to improve the user experience and
accessibility of digital archives. I strongly encourage all librarians and
archivist, especially BIPOC professionals, working or interested in this
arena to participate in the free symposium.

The symposium will feature sessions on the current challenges of access to
archives, industry design practices and initiatives, and emerging
directions. Speakers include designers, archivists, librarians, and
disability advocates. The full program and list of speakers is forthcoming.

The symposium is part of a grant-funded project from the Institute of
Museum and Library Services, and is held in conjunction with a spring
studio class.

February 11, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM (Pacific)

The event will be recorded

Registration is free, but RSVP required:
