The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) is organizing a one-day symposium during the 2024 New York Archives Week. The day will focus on presentations and panel discussions, studies, strategies, research, analyses, and use studies with the aim of bringing together archivists, records managers, librarians, museum professionals, scholars, and the general public.

This year's topic, Archives and Technology, will explore ways in which technology and archives intersect. We welcome submissions that examine technological theories and practices in the evolving archives landscape.

What technological challenges do Information institutions and archives face? What theories and practices are currently employed?  How might technology best support existing processes? What benefits might emerging technologies bring to the information management field?   What would the archiving landscape look like within new technological parameters?

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Digitization Technologies
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
  • Advancements in Preservation and Conservation
  • Advocacy, Social Justice, Anti-Racism, Public Policy, and Activism
  • Digital Humanities and Digital Scholarship
  • User Experience
  • Security Principles: Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability
  • The Digital Divide
  • Privacy and Access
  • Storage Solutions
  • Artificial intelligence and its impacts and opportunities
  • Blockchain Applications

  • Presenters may submit as part of a group. The maximum group size is three speakers.
  • Submissions must include title, name of author, and institutional affiliation (if applicable)
