On Wednesday December 5, the Collections as Data Reading Group will discuss ethical aspects of working with data. We'll ask:
- What are the ethical issues we need to keep in mind as we generate collections as data?
- How do we document/publish our ethical approach/stance?
We'll have a special presentation by members of the Mudd Manuscript Library about the Archives Research and Collaborative History (ARCH) program and discuss Safiya Noble's Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism in advance of her keynote talk on Dec. 6.
