Born-digital access is an unresolved challenge in the archival profession. Best practices for processing and preserving born-digital materials have developed, but solutions for access lag behind. This hackfest invites participants to tackle that challenge head-on by developing solutions designed to mature beyond the Annual Meeting. Session leaders share a brief analysis of survey results that map the current landscape of born-digital access, intended to inspire hacker teams to design achievable best practice models for access.
