About the Forum
The BitCurator Users Forum brings together representatives from libraries, archives, museums, and related information professions engaged in (or considering) digital forensics work to acquire, better understand, and make available born-digital materials. The 2017 forum will be expanded to two days providing even more opportunities for community members and users to engage and learn from each other. It will balance discussion of theory and practice of digital forensics and related digital analysis workflows with hands-on activities for users at all levels of experience with the BitCurator environment, digital forensics methods in general, and other tools used in digital analysis and curation.

The BitCurator Users Forum is organized by the BCC’s Program Committee:

Laura Alagna, Northwestern University
Matthew Farrell, Duke University
Susan Malsbury, New York Public Library
Sam Meister, Educopia Institute
Mary Samouelian, Harvard University
