The distributed and self-directing Occupy movement created a host of archival opportunities and challenges. Speakers from diverse backgrounds (including government, nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities, and the Occupy movement itself) share a variety of perspectives. Focus areas include donor relations, documentation strategies, self-documentation and crowdsourcing, social media and digital archiving, oral histories and sound recordings, and the archives profession's response to Occupy.
