Librarians and archivists from underrepresented communities will share their experiences building space and breaking stereotypes of marginalized communities. We will explore the challenges and limitations in launching and maintaining archival projects, looking at models such as the Race & Racism at The University of Richmond Project, a community archive serving the Mixteco community, a digital collection of tattooed Asian Americans, and a digital family archive. Participants will be introduced to tools and methods to build community archives and digital collections.
