Preserving Born-Digital Works: Engaging Undergraduates in Digital Research and Archives Work: Dene Grigar, Nicholas Schiller
The Electronic Literature Lab at WSU Vancouver has three goals: first to preserve and archive early works of electronic literature, second to provide contemporary audiences with access previously unavailable due to outmoded media, and finally to facilitate scholarly discourses around these works. We have been engaging undergraduate researchers in all three aspects of this work. This presentation will describe how undergraduates are prepared for and assisted in engaging in the scholarly work of born-digital archives.

Plotting and Scheming for Student Engagement in Long Term Digital Research: Kristy Golubiewski-Davis, Jessica Pigza
In 2017, UC Santa Cruz Library’s Digital Scholarship Commons and its Special Collections & Archives challenged themselves to collaborate on creating a new model for student engagement--one with a workflow mindful of the cyclical nature of student work while also offering a means of showcasing the potential of both special collections as well as digital methods for student work. Of critical importance was that students could participate in the full lifecycle of a digital project, from planning conversations through creative work contributions, and experience the complexities and the potential of digital resources in conversation with primary sources. The speakers have worked together over the past year to meet this challenge, and they will share what they learned while collaborating on the first iteration of this experimental approach, which focused on exploring the research possibilities of a collection of early 20th c. hand colored lantern slides and lecture notes of itinerant speaker Branson DeCou.
