ELO 2015: The End(s) of Electronic Literature

Documenting Events and Works in the ELMCIP Electronic Literature Knowledge Base

Conveners: Scott Rettberg, Álvaro Seiça and Patricia Tomaszek (University of Bergen)

Tuesday, August 4 • 10:00 - 12:45 (HF 265)

This half-day workshop will be focused on the preservation and archiving of Electronic Literature Organization events and conferences. Scott Rettberg has been asked by the ELO board to establish a standing committee of ELO members that will be focused on documenting and archiving current and past ELO events. This workshop will be focused both on the future scope and projects of that committee and on the hands-on documentation of ELO conferences in the ELMCIP Electronic Literature Knowledge Base. We will consider questions including:

  • What are the best practices related to archiving for ELO conference organizers?
  • Should relationships be established with one or more libraries or archives to preserve data and ephemera from ELO conferences?
  • How should we best go about gathering ELO archives materials and preserving them?
  • How can we archive events using the platform of the ELMCIP Electronic Literature Knowledge Base?

The session will include a discussion of these issues followed by hands-on work in the ELMCIP Knowledge Base. Participants will learn how to document their presentations, papers, creative works, and events in order to preserve them and make them available to other international researchers.

No prior competencies are required, though participants are advised to apply for a user account in the ELMCIP Electronic Literature Knowledge Base prior to the conference.
