PHASE TWO OF THE SYLIX DATABASE PROJECT 2021-2022

We are approaching Phase 2 of the Syilx Database Project, Community Engagement and the Syilx Sharing Protocol. The Syilx Database team has been working to define the terms related to the project and specific work related to the permission levels needed to guide the use, storage and access of the OKIB CKK (Cultural Knowledge Keeper). In our previous article we gave an overview of the project and a brief overview of the Syilx Sharing Protocol.

WHAT IS THE SYLIX SHARING PROTOCOL?

A procedural document for both digital and physical information or materials that will define the parameters of a safe and protected way to give different permissions for CKK access. The Syilx Database team has started to define what these permission levels are for community and public access.

WHY DO WE NEED THE SYLIX SHARING PROTOCOL?

To protocol is a mechanism that defines the parameters for a safe and protected way to provide access for community members and the public to certain areas and materials in the database based on defined permission levels. This is what we would like to present to the community to gather insight.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU

We want to give the community as many opportunities and channels to share their insights about the protocol. Throughout the summer we invite you to find ways to connect through our community engagement series. The individual interviews will focus on connecting with members who have shared information with TSD previously. You can also participate in the online survey or one of the community engagement sessions.
