Bertram Lyons represented ACE in South Africa at the Digital Heritage Repatriation Workshop held at the International Library of African Music at Rhodes University, December 9-12, 2008, a collaboration between the University of Michigan African Studies Center, ILAM and the University of Ghana. The purpose of the workshop was to draft guidelines for the “Use, Sale and Reproduction of Digital Heritage” and “Repatriation of Digital Heritage” for African memory repositories. Lyons presented a paper on ACE’s Caribbean digital repatriation project as a model for the dissemination of digital cultural heritage. The resulting guidelines will be published by ILAM and the University of Michigan.
