SESSION 405 - Shout It from the Mountaintop: Changing Perceptions About Archival Advocacy

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

Advocacy is becoming an important part of our profession. With a poor economy, slashed budgets, and a lack of public knowledge about archives, many from outside the profession believe that budgets can be slashed from our departments and organizations. Can it all be avoided? Is our apprehension of advocacy something we can overcome, and can advocacy be something we incorporate into our profession?
