Indigitization is a partnership between the University of British Columbia Library and the Museum of Anthropology which provides resources, funding and support for First Nations to digitize analog media collections. Evolving from a pilot project, the program strives to be widely effective by developing hands-on practices, using freely available software, and growing its capacity and reach through new institutional collaborations. The presenters will discuss developing and managing this community responsive program from different perspectives.
