Archives and Preservation Workshop


Archives and Preservation Workshop

Latinos, African-Americans, Asian-Americans and the LGBT community make up more than 42 percent of Arizona’s population, but are only represented in 0–2 percent of known archival collections. Learn how to be a community archivist for underrepresented communities.

ASU Library staff will show individuals how to appraise, arrange and describe archival material (e.g. photographs or correspondence) in order to preserve it for future generations. Each participant will receive a free “Archive Starter Kit” that contains preservation information and archival supplies (acid-free box, folders, mylar, and gloves).
