Information Maintenance as a Practice of Care: An Invitation to Reflect and Share
We would like to point to the release of the following paper, which we believe will be of direct interest to the WDS community:
– Information Maintenance as a Practice of Care: An Invitation to Reflect and Share
In this piece, the authors begin to describe intersections of information maintenance and care ethics in ways that are real and meaningful for information maintainers (i.e., those who manage, maintain, and preserve information systems).
Contributors to this document have varied experiences with information maintenance: community organizers and facilitators, archivists, repository managers, project managers, designers, librarians, researchers, grantmakers, educators, and more. The authors invite those in occupations and roles who understand that the relationship is especially valuable between information maintenance and an ethic of care to read, react, share, and engage with this potluck of ideas. Please circulate widely!
