Join README during our weekly Lab Hours!
For the 2019 spring quarter through June 6th, members of README will be posted up in the IS Lab (Zone A) in GSEIS on Thursdays from 3pm-4pm. Each week, we will circulate a topic and relevant short news article through our website, IS-Net, and our listserv to better frame the conversation. If you have a topic or article suggestion, send it to email@example.com or @ us on Twitter at @uclareadme
Topic for April 4th: Free Week! This week, we’ll ease into our lab hours with a relatively unstructured check-in! We can talk about a recent meeting some members had with Elliot Harmon (Activism Director @ EFF), our upcoming event “After Disruption,” our participation in the UCLA Arts Party @ Hammer Museum, as well as brainstorm future lab hour topics and potential collaborations. Join us!
All are welcome to drop in and chat with us! This includes IS faculty, staff, and students as well as allies from around the UCLA campus and its libraries.

How do institutions add new materials to their collections?
The IS Lab welcomes participants to assist with the accession and digitization of recently acquired materials. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to accession and digitization practices for archival collections, including setting the appropriate level of description, articulating the link between description and arrangement, documenting an initial assessment, and starting a digitization project. The goal of the workshop is to provide practical experience in assessing, processing, digitizing, and managing gifted collections, especially within the context of a small repository.
Please join us at 12:30pm on May 2 in the IS Lab!
