- S is for Special: Adventures with the Ship of Theseus, 2-3pm
Conceived by J.J. Abrams and written by Doug Dorst, the novel S. is composed of several interlocking stories, including a novel, The Ship of Theseus by V.M. Straka, filled with loose postcards, letters, and other ephemera. MIT Libraries staff imagine how such a text would hold up over time and how the experience of future readers might be affected.
- The Day the Music Didn’t Die: Saving MIT’s Analog Music Sound Recordings, 3-3:30pm
This talk will examine the work of digitizing approximately 2,000 uncataloged analog sound recordings, while providing advice to other libraries with similar sound recording backlogs.
- An NDSR-Boston Resident @ MIT Libraries, 3:30-3:50
Alexandra Curran discusses her experiences, including her professional development opportunities in digital preservation.
