Archival Ethics Panel
Most archivists have encountered ethical dilemmas in their professional work. Who has the right to see what, and who makes that decision and how? Beyond following established retention schedules, are there other types of materials we should not be keeping? Or are there special ways we should be managing a certain type of material? This panel seeks to discuss how repositories, institutions, and organizations deal with culturally sensitive materials, privacy & access rights, creating boundaries in an archive, and tips on displaying and presenting materials.

Archives and the Digital Deal Panel
In spite of differing standards, best practices, and systems used across the digital landscape, archives and special collections are successfully made available to populations around the world. This panel explores digital collection efforts from institutions, repositories, and organizations in Hawai’i and the impact of digital collections have had on various communities. Panelists present on unique digitization projects and collaborations, discuss processing and providing access to digital and “Born Digital” material, and give insight on the curation of online exhibits.

Changing the Center: Archives on Neighbor Islands Panel
Neighbor Island professionals face unique challenges with scarce funding, distance from our largest city in the State, and continuing education opportunities. Beyond that, the way professionals and repositories from Neighbor Islands are viewed tends to be a bit in the margins. This panel explores the latest undertakings, programs, and projects, as well as some of the obstacles Neighbor Island professionals have encountered along the way and how have they have addressed issues and reframed the “center” with creative techniques and methods in their archives. The Q&A portion of this panel will be hosted by Hawai’i Council for the Humanities. HCH will also briefly speak about the opportunities available for preservation and archival organizations through their grants program as well as their efforts to support the growth and success of the humanities in Hawai’i.
