Here at the DBG project, we center the media and material representations of Black girls. We care deeply about the politics of representation and the ways that we learn about others through our exposure and access to popular culture. The Digital Black Girls project values media for its educational potential, especially for and about blackness, girlhood, and other aspects of Black girls’ identity.

We wrote our book to provide faculty with stepping stones into best preservation practices of their digital projects. It offers advice on project planning, resource formats, methods of preservation, and includes advice on documenting interactive projects. Finally, additional resources for further reading are included.

I found this CD ROM in the trash. The physical media will last 200 years, but it is impossible to run the software on this disc using a computer today. This is an attempt to document the software and the documents that were shipped with it.

I’m working on a dissertation that involves cataloguing and preserving some of the most popular content that circulates on social media daily – the external links, that is to say, that garner the most “shares,” “likes,” etc. on platforms like FBK and Twitter.
