Documenting Science in the Digital Age: What's the Same and What's Different

Like other forms of human knowledge, scientific knowledge is produced in particular times, places, and cultures, by a single individual or by a group of individuals. Within particular areas of investigation, people produce this knowledge by using, developing, and extending practices that are based on the loosely defined concept known as the scientific method. In this talk, a practicing archivist will describe how the University of Illinois archives is using anthropological concepts, archival practices, and digital technologies to preserve print and electronic records documenting the scientific process.
