505 - Working for Tomorrow: Student Activism, Education, and Diversity in the Archives

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

Education, professional development, and diversity come together in a lightning round showcasing the archival outreach work of MLIS students and recent graduates. They describe how they use their skills and experience to raise awareness, collect stories, and preserve/promote voices of those underrepresented in the archives and the archival profession. Student panelists offer ideas and feedback for developing your own outreach efforts as a student or new graduate.
