The joint Upper Midwest Digital Collections Conference (#UMDCC20) and the Minnesota Digital Library Annual Meeting (#mndiglib2020) was held virtually November 5-6, 2020. Our two conferences share the same goals of providing an opportunity to connect with colleagues, share projects, and learn from each other, with the added benefit of cross-pollination between two different groups with many affinities.
Note: Registration is required for this event and is now closed.

Bettina Fabos is a Professor of Interactive Digital Studies at the University of Northern Iowa. Both a scholar and producer of digital culture, her written and creative work revolve around digital culture, digital photo archiving, digital visualization, and the Creative Commons. She is the co-founder and Director of Fortepan Iowa [fortepan.us], a public photo archive of everyday Iowa life, and is creative director of the award-winning interactive timeline project, Proud and Torn: A Memoir of Hungarian History, [proudandtorn.org], an extensive photo history of Hungary based on amateur family snapshots. With a background in journalism, media production and media literacy pedagogy, Fabos has written extensively about the role of the U.S. media in democracy and Internet commercialization, and continues to interpret photographic history through video, interactive web stories, and public art. As Director of Fortepan Iowa, she sees the value of archive activism and in making historical photographs as publicly accessible as possible, so others can use them, interpret them, and tell stories.
