LACA at the LAABF Classroom for The Dynamic Library
The Dynamic Library: Organizing Knowledge at the Sitterwerk - Precedents and Possibilities. At the Sitterwerk in St. Gallen, Switzerland, an unusual system that relies on RFID technology was developed to turn an idiosyncratic collection of art books into a publicly accessible library. For this event, David Evans Frantz (Curator, ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries ), Kylie Gilchrist (Coordinator, A.R.T.’s D.U.C. Program), Hailey Loman (Director, LACA), Clarice De Veyra (LACA, Archivist) and Rosten Woo (Haystacks, Harvard Library ) will discuss the collections that they manage, how they organize them, and how they make them accessible. The discussion will explore the challenges and pleasures they’ve encountered, as well as the role played by digital technology. Presented by Soberscove Press.
Sun Foot / Sally Timms in the Lodge (back room of LACA)
