    “Implementing a Trauma-Informed Approach to Archives”

    Virtual Workshop 

    Hosted by the Australian Society of Archivists, this workshop will consider how archives can use the principles of trauma-informed practice to provide a better service for all who use and engage with archives. Trauma-informed archival practice enables better connections with those who use archives, facilitates a reimagining about what archives can be for everyone, and challenges current models of archival work. 

    Time:  6:00 PM Eastern Time / 3:00 PM Pacific Time

    The workshop is approx. 3 hours (including 1x20-minute break) and is limited to a maximum of 20 participants.

    For more details and to register, please use this weblink: https://www.archivists.org.au/events/event/virtual-workshop-implementing-trauma-informed-archival-practice


    "This workshop will consider how archives can use the principles of trauma-informed practice to provide a better service for all who use and engage with archives. Trauma-informed archival practice enables better connections with those who use archives, facilitates a reimagining about what archives can be for everyone; and challenges current models of archival work. It is aimed at anyone working in archives and across the broader GLAMR sector.

    The workshop complements, rather than is a substitution for, the online courses. The intent of the workshop is for participants to discuss real-life scenarios based on their current contexts, and develop ideas and strategies to take back to their organisations, around the area of trauma-informed archival practice. It is not a requirement that participants have completed the online course before attending the workshop – but participants may find completing the online courses useful before or after attending the workshop to get the full theoretical grounding.

    While an obvious place for implementing trauma-informed practice is a reference service, this session will also discuss implementing principles of trauma-informed practice in broader areas of archival work, including archival description, providing access and releasing records, and dealing with the effects of vicarious trauma on staff.

    Workshop participants will complete assessments of their archives and develop a plan of practical actions they can take back to their organisations to begin implementing a trauma-informed approach. As part of the workshop, participants also will be completing plans for their organisations.

    By the conclusion of the workshop participants will be able to:

    • List the principles of trauma-informed practice and understand their significance
    • Understand why a trauma-informed approach may be useful for archives and other GLAMR institutions
    • Discuss how a trauma-informed approach can be used across areas of archival work
    • Consider how trauma-informed their workplaces currently are
    • Create a practical plan around implementing a trauma-informed approach, to go back to their workplaces with, for further discussion and implementation
    • Gain an understanding of what vicarious trauma is, and how organisations can support their staff
    • Develop advocacy statements to advocate to organisations for vicarious trauma recognition and support."

    ACA 2022 - Pre-Conference Workshop

    "Every Last Byte: Making the Most of Access Copies in Archives"


    When: June 14, 2022 via Zoom

    Time: 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM PT / 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET

    Capacity: 100 participants


    Outline

    This workshop will include of demos to show the exact interfaces of programs being discussed, as well as live demos of ffmpeg for creating x265 files using graphics hardware. The following topics will be covered: 

    • Intro/why do access copies matter?
    • (Briefly) looking back at an exciting decade for video technology
    • Codecs & Containers
    • Needs, Wants, and Dreams: understanding the priority order for video quality
    • Demo - Questions/Open discussion time
    • Demo 2 (will be more specific to analog video transfers)
    • Looking ahead at the future of video compression - Questions again/close

    Learning Objectives

    The objective of this workshop is to provide information and interactive demos that will make participants feel more confident in the choices they face when compressing files. Bitrate, resolution, color detail, and the video content itself are all factors that an A/V Preservation professional will need to balance in creating access copies that are disk, network, and time efficient.

    In this workshop, participants at any level of experience with video can learn more about the tools available for video compression, the factors that affect a video file's size, and how to specifically measure performance of a certain codec or configuration. The tools/technologies featured in the workshop include: ffmpeg, x265, AV1 (with discussion of the Alliance for Open Media), CRF (constant rate factor) encoding, and both the PSNR and VMAF codec efficiency measurement tools. 

    This workshop will focus on free and open-source software and participants on Windows, macOS, or Linux will be able to follow along.

    ACA 2022 - Pre-Conference Workshop

    “Artificial Intelligence and Archives: the I Trust AI Research Project.”


    When: June 14, 2022 in-person at University of British Columbia, the Nest

    Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM PT

    Capacity: 40 participants

    The ongoing availability, accessibility, and trustworthiness of public records is under threat, due to sociotechnical changes that have left our public institutions staggering under an overwhelming abundance, complexity, and lack of control of records. Without automated means of processing, we will increasingly lose control of public records, and ultimately, the public will lose trust in archives. However, implementing automated solutions - especially Artificial Intelligence solutions - raises a whole new set of costs and risks, from the expenses involved in implementing systems, to the risks of privacy breach, bias and discrimination, and loss of discretion.

    This workshop will explain the fundamental ideas on which AI is based, discuss types of AI tools available, and identify both the advantages and issues presented by their use on records and archives. It will then outline the way the new InterPARES project, I Trust AI, aims to determine how the records and archives community can develop its own AI tools based on archival principles, and leverage them to support society's demand for trustworthy public records. Finally, it will present some of the studies that are being carried out by the I Trust AI researchers, and their outcomes to date, and will involve the workshop participants in the analysis and discussion of such outcomes.

    Outline:

    • Muhammad Abdul Mageed and Peter Sullivan will explain types of AI systems and tools.
    • Luciana Duranti will present what kind of tools are needed by the profession vs those that have been used to date, and the reasons why the 5th phase of the InterPARES project will be necessary.
    • Corinne Rogers will discuss the structure of the I Trust AI project and, with Peter Sullivan, provide an overview of the studies in progress.
    • The participants will be divided in 4 groups, each chaired by one of the speakers, to discuss the studies and propose additional studies
    • The participants will rejoin to discuss the new proposals

    Learning Outcomes

    • The participants will learn to
    • recognize different types of AI tools
    • identify the type of tool needed for different archival functions and activities
    • assess the conditions required for the use of AI tools (e.g. amount of terabytes of digitized material)
    • understand what is feasible and what is not
    • learn what current research is being done on the use of AI in archives 
    Workshop Instructors

    Muhammad Abdul-Mageed is Canada Research Chair in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. His research focuses on deep representation learning and natural language socio-pragmatics, with two main goals: (1) development of `social’ machines for improved human health, safer social networking, and reduced information overload; and (2) use of machine learning as a vehicle for making discoveries with and about human language. He is currently leading several funded projects, including InterPARES Trust AI, and has been funded by SSHRC, NSERC, CFI, Google, Amazon, AMD, among others.

    Luciana Duranti is a Professor at the UBC School of Information, where she teaches archival diplomatics, appraisal, preservation of digital records, and history of recordkeeping. Her research aims to find solutions to digital record issues that can be universally applied. Since 1998, she has been the Director of InterPARES (International Research on Permanent Authentic Records in Electronic Systems), a multi-national and multi-disciplinary research project studying the long-term preservation of authentic electronic records, which is now in its 5th phase. She has been the lead investigator also for other SSHRC-funded projects, such as Records in the Clouds and Digital Records Forensics.

    Corinne Rogers is the Project Coordinator for InterPARES Trust AI (UBC, 2021-2026), a multidisciplinary, international partnership researching the uses and applicability of Artificial Intelligence in archival workflows to ensure trust and trustworthiness of records and data. She is an adjunct professor in the UBC School of Information, where she teaches diplomatics and digital preservation.  She was most recently a Systems Archivist at Artefactual Systems, lead developers and organizational home to open source projects for digital preservation, AccessToMemory (AtoM) and Archivematica.

    Peter Sullivan is a Graduate Academic Assistant working under Luciana and Muhammad. His research focuses on Speech Processing, particularly Automatic Speech Recognition and classification (State Detection, Language and Dialect ID). Prior to returning to academia, he was a high-school Computer Science teacher, and brings with him his passion for demystifying complex technologies.
