In this episode I discuss the recent conclusion of the "Healing and Education Through Digital Access" project undertaken by the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre. I talk about community engagement, how not all information wants to be free, and online access.

I would love to hear about your experiences working with community to undertake a digitization project. Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
