Overview

The Digital Archive Research Collective (DARC) offers centralized and dedicated support to the emergent community of students, faculty, and staff who are working on digital archival projects throughout The Graduate Center. Over the 2019-2020 academic year, DARC will hold a series of workshops and events, as well as create an online resource guide. Through the workshops and event series, we aim to foster community among the researchers and groups that are already pursuing digital archival work at the Graduate Center. Through the online guide, we will collect technical, academic, financial, and institutional resources to scaffold future digital archival projects at The Graduate Center. By developing awareness around archival work and facilitating access to sustainable technical and academic support, DARC will help to crystallize the digital archival community at The Graduate Center.

DARC is a project of GC Digital Initiatives (GCDI) at The Graduate Center, CUNY. GCDI is a community of students, staff, and faculty distributed across centers, labs, initiatives, and academic programs who share an interest in digital scholarship and research. We offer events, workshops, office hours, faculty consultations, week-long institutes, and community-based working groups. Learn more about GCDI, our upcoming programming and how you can get involved on the GCDI website.
