Scholarships Available for 2014 Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums Conference
Wednesday, March 12, 2014
The Sustainable Heritage Network (SHN) is an answer to the
pressing need for comprehensive workshops, online tutorials and web resources
dedicated to the lifecycle of digital preservation. The SHN is a collaborative
space that compliments the work of indigenous communities globally to preserve
cultural heritage and knowledge.
Leveraging existing networks from our partners at the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums
(ATALM), the SHN provides a space to communicate and learn about digital
stewardship and preservation. The Sustainable Heritage Network is a gathering
place that makes information and resources accessible for anyone who wants to
preserve their heritage.
Central to the work of the SHN is facilitating the sharing
of both knowledge and resources. Within the network, institutions and
communities work together to provide each other with digital tools and
preservation assistance. We call this: Collaborative Stewardship.
