Information maintenance refers to the work that sustains and repairs information, information systems, and information communities, as well as the many actions that keep our sociotechnical world going. Information Maintainers share a deep commitment to recast our work within the frame of information maintenance and infuse it with practices, relationships, and ways of thinking and being that represents a coherent ethic of care. 


Join us for a community meet-up at NDSA Digipres 2019 to share your reflections, questions, critiques, and experiences as information maintainers. The meet-up is open to everyone attending NDSA Digipres 2019. We merely ask that you indicate your attendance using Sched (, OR add your name to this VERY BRIEF sign-up sheet so we can organize seating accordingly. Access the whitepaper entitled "Information Maintenance as a Practice of Care."
