Archives and Manuscripts Special Issue: Information Technologies and Indigenous Communities

The long-awaited Information Technologies and Indigenous Communities special issue of Archives and Manuscripts has been published online. ASA Members get free access to all A&M papers online via the Taylor and Francis webpage, make sure you log in via the member centre, to take full advantage of your membership.

This most recent issue was guest edited by Lyndon Ormond-Parker and Aaron Corn and contains revised versions of papers that were presented at the Information Technology and Indigenous Communities (ITIC) symposium that took place in tandem with the ASA Conference 2017.

Topics covered include audiovisual archives, the administration of Indigenous archives, connecting community to their archives, digital tools and approaches to representing Indigenous knowledge.

Eight peer-reviewed articles are complemented by two reflections that explore specific archives in depth. Two book reviews are included about recent books that have built significantly on research into archived Indigenous resources.

Lots of food for thought and practical examples of managing archives in a changing world.
