Saving Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Online
Friday, May 13, 2022
12 – 1 p.m. PST
We invite you to join the SJSU King Library and special guest speakers Anna
E. Kijas from Tufts University and Quinn Dombrowski from Stanford
University to learn the story behind the grassroots organization Saving
Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Online (SUCHO <https://www.sucho.org/>).
This group of more than 1,300 cultural heritage professionals – librarians,
archivists, researchers, programmers – are working together to identify and
archive at-risk sites, digital content, and data in Ukrainian cultural
heritage institutions while the country is under attack.
So far SUCHO has saved more than 30TB of scanned documents, artworks, and
many other digital materials from 3,500+ websites of Ukrainian museums,
libraries, and archives. Come learn how the organization came into being,
how the process works, and the volunteer opportunities that are available.
We hope to see you there!
