Slides from the BC Library Association's 2017 conference plenary Hot Topics panel.

Figuring out an ethical way to respectfully digitize culturally sensitive collections, like OOB, will strengthen our relationships with communities, our collection development policies, and our digitization practices. As a profession we need to build relationships with communities and listen to what they think is appropriate access, and then build systems that respect that.

  6. 6. “When I heard all the issues of the magazine are being digitized, my heart sank. I meant this work to be for my community and now I am being objectified in a way that I have no control over. People can cut up my body and make it a collage. My professional and public life can be high jacked. These are uses I never intended and I still don't want.” – A N O N Y M O U S # 1

  8. 8. “It's one thing to have regrets over what you've published, but I actually never consented to have this photoshoot published by On Our Backs in the first place, let alone digitally” – A N O N Y M O U S # 2

  10. 10. “What was once a dignified choice now feels like a violation of my body, my voice and my right to choose. In no small way is the digitization a perpetuation of how sex workers, survivors and queer bodies have been historically and pervasively coopted. How larger, often institutional, forces have made decisions without consulting us or considering our personal well-being.” – A M B E R D A W N
