Digital Forensics: The Academic Library and Beyond

April 27 - 28, 2017
Norris University Center
Northwestern University 
Evanston, IL

The BitCurator Users Forum brings together representatives from libraries, archives, museums, and related information professions engaged in (or considering) digital forensics work to acquire, better understand, and make available born-digital materials. The 2017 forum will be expanded to two days providing even more opportunities for community members and users to engage and learn from each other. It will balance discussion of theory and practice of digital forensics and related digital analysis workflows with hands-on activities for users at all levels of experience with the BitCurator environment, digital forensics methods in general, and other tools used in digital analysis and curation.

Workshop: Diving Deep with BitCurator

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

This workshop will be aimed at intermediate to advanced users who have a solid understanding of digital forensics and BitCurator basics, and are looking to extend and advance their knowledge and skills. 

Topics may include:

  • Repetitive tasks that could benefit from automation yet currently require human intervention
  • Workflow breakdowns and bottlenecks common to multiple users
  • Functionality that does not currently exist but would benefit multiple users

Depending on the issues and topics gathered from users, deliverables for the advanced track may include user stories, product requirements for desired features, proposed workflow and related diagrams, or scripts and other rudimentary tools for automating tasks.

Due to the hands-on nature of both tracks, participants will be asked to bring a laptop computer, preferably with the minimal system requirements to run BitCurator in a virtual machine.
