SESSION 706 - Community Archives and the Archivists Who Love Them: Teaming Up to Tell the Whole Story

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

People who care for community archives are often passionate about their collections and deeply knowledgeable about the content, but have little or no formal archival training. Archivists must be flexible and creative in working with community archives. In this session, the speakers discuss the nature of community archives, the central role of oral history in documenting them, and how traditional archival practices can be modified to fit their needs.
