We have two free webinars coming up in March from AAPB NDSR residents Kate McManus and Selena Chau:

Through the Trapdoor: Metadata & Disambiguation in Fanfiction, a case study (Kate McManus)
Thursday, March 9th
3:00 PM EST

Within the last twenty years, fanfiction writing has transfigured from disparate communities like webrings within Geocities communities into websites like AO3, providing a more intimate and interactive space for the wide world of web communities to gather and create. Recently, professionals who work to preserve and archive pop culture have begun to open dialogues with fan writers in hope that these underground communities will share their labors of love, but doing so creates its own problems for both creators and archivists.
