Computer Forensics and Cultural Heritage Meeting

On May 14 and 15th I hosted an invitational meeting sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation on the topic of Computer Forensics and Cultural Heritage, which brought to campus over 60 specialists and researchers from the US, Canada, and the UK. The meeting was the first of its kind to discuss the role of forensic computing for born-digital literary and other cultural and creative materials. You can see some pictures here and follow the tweet stream here.

A report entitled Computer Forensics and Born-Digital Content in Cultural Heritage Collections by myself and my co-authors Richard Ovenden and Gabriela Redwine will be published in the fall by the Council on Library and Information Resources.
