The BCC Program Committee is pleased to announce that the preliminary program
is now available for the BitCurator Users Forum.
The Forum will be held virtually October 12-14, 2021. Each day will include workshops, lightning talks, and themed sessions on starting from scratch, iteration and scalability, implementing "good enough" practices, issues pertaining to access and discovery, and hearing from intersecting perspectives and new voices. There will also be a return of the "Great Question!" session where attendees can ask anonymous questions in an open forum, and two Birds of a Feather sessions for BIPOC and Students and New Professionals.

About the BitCurator Users Forum
The BitCurator Users Forum brings together representatives from libraries, archives, museums, and related information professions engaged in or considering digital archival work to acquire, better understand, and make available born-digital materials. The three-day forum will balance discussion of theory and practice of digital archiving and related digital analysis workflows with hands-on activities for users at all levels of experience with digital archival methods in general, including the BitCurator environment, and other tools for use in digital analysis and curation.
The BitCurator Users Forum is organized by the BCC
