Formal institutions can only collect, document and provide access to a limited number and type of materials in limited ways. Thus, institutions miss out on collections or aspects of description that may be culturally important (to underserved groups, to small subcultures, to countercultural groups, etc.), which introduces myriad ethical issues. This panel will focus on “everyday documentation” of arts and humanities-based collections done by those outside libraries, archives, and museums, and how such documentation practices can and should inform institutional practice and technological developments. The panel consists of a diverse group of academic researchers and practitioners working with a variety of arts and humanities collections. This panel is a program of the SIG for Arts and Humanities (SIG-AH).
