Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback 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.
