Information Maintainers September 2020 Meeting

The Information Maintainers is an open community dedicated to supporting the maintenance of information and those who manage, maintain, and preserve information systems. On September 25, we held our monthly meeting where we eschewed our usual guest-speaker structure to spend some time learning about information maintenance frameworks for Indigenous data sovereignty and the preservation of Indigenous cultural knowledge.
