Getting started with the command line can be tough! Many archivists never have a reason to use it… until they do, when they need to use digital archiving tools which run in the terminal. That isn't exactly a gentle introduction, and task-specific experience doesn't always translate into confidence with the command line interface. Moreover, support for those tools often assumes a level of familiarity with the command line which users simply may not have, and may find it difficult to acquire. That's where this workshop comes in.
This workshop will give participants a greater understanding of the intersectional nature of successful DEI efforts. Through real world scenarios session attendees will learn how to create a more inclusive environment utilizing a variety of simple tools and skills. We will cover everything from normalizing identity markers and creating an inclusive environment to solutions to typical, real-world, situations.
