Welcome to Lisa Snider's Website

I am an archivist who works at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

I have worked with analog, hybrid (analog/digital) and born digital collections, and have processed a variety of materials such as: photographs, negatives, videos, pens, clothing, metal objects, cloud email, websites and social media sites. I am also an experienced web developer and accessibility/usability expert.

Digital Curation for Beginners: An Archival View for Librarians

Do you have nightmares about digital curation? Would you rather go to the dentist than learn about it? If you said yes, then this webinar is for you! Lisa Snider has designed this webinar for beginners, and uses analogies and plain language to explain the major components of the digital curation lifecycle.

She will talk about the lifecycle from the time materials come in, to the preservation, storage and access of them. The webinar is taught from an archival point of view, but easily translates to libraries.

My Presentation Posted From The 2014 Texas Digital Library Conference

Being an 'a11y': Increasing Accessibility in Born Digital Preservation

In the past few years, archivists and librarians have grappled with issues associated with the long term preservation of born digital materials. Are we considering the needs of people with disabilities when preserving these materials?

This presentation will explore how we can increase accessibility when preserving born digital materials. Taken from an archival point of view, the presentation will focus on one solution that may make our born digital material more accessible to people with disabilities.
