Grant Hurley | Research

Research Interests: I am interested in many things relating to archives and libraries, including: making digital preservation activities accessible and actionable; digital preservation workflows, standards and certification; open government, open data, and citizen engagement; and subjects relating to archival theory and practice more broadly, such as community archives and decolonization.
