    • How and why researchers use and interact with performing arts web archives
    • Data computation, analysis, and visualization projects based on performing arts web archives and born-digital records
    • Collection development policy initiatives to incorporate web archives into performing arts special collections
    • Including performing arts web archives in finding aids
    • Reference and engagement work around performing arts web archives and born-digital records
    • Web archiving and post-custodial performing arts archives
    • Performing arts web archives design for mixed audiences/diverse patrons
    • And more!
