12:20 - 12:30pm Franklin Furnace Archives
Nicole Rosengurt, Archives Assistant, Franklin Furnace Archives
Franklin Furnace Archive has long been a historic repository of artists books, and in the 46 years in which they've been collecting, they have amassed a collection of vertical files related to works and artists which represent the robust history of both experimental and canonical art. The Franklin Furnace Archive is in the process of fully digitizing this collection of vertical files, with the intent of publishing and disseminating this work to allow unprecedented access to the "behind the scenes" context and content of these artists and their scene. In this talk, Nicole will discuss the process of digitization and cataloging that they are undertaking, with emphasis on digitization standards and metadata development. They will also discuss their plans for building and publishing the collection online, and the benefits to research this opportunity will provide.
