I don't know how it's been OVER A YEAR since I logged in to glammr.us but hi digipres.club keeps going down so maybe I'm back over here?

@sabrams tbh I have yet to ever even feel like "oh this QA is for sure *done*" at the point at which I stop doing QA

@ron @platypus this is one reading on the topic I've found useful, in particular the last section "Replication and Reproduction": displayatyourownrisk.org/gerst "if the faithful reproduction is allowed to be and is accepted as a substitute for the original, does it matter whether we still have the original or is the reproduction sufficient as a means to study, observe, and enjoy the past? This also leads to questions about who has the right to re-create and determine the authenticity of the past"

Glad to be in glammrus! I'm also @elizabeengland, I do digital archives and preservation work in an academic library & in a past life worked in galleries while/after studying art history. So I guess I have GLA-ed. I'm particularly interested in how visual materials are preserved, described, and accessed.

glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles. Many of us are Twitter refugees looking for an inclusive and community supported approach to social media.
