Founded in 2014, the Itinerant Archivists' (IA) mission is to connect U.S. archivists with colleagues abroad to build international collaborations and share ideas and experiences. With the goal to further the archival enterprise and an eye on political and social justice, IA planned and facilitated a 2015 pilot program to Ecuador. Founders Baur, Kelleher, and Snyder discuss the pilot, including project overview, lessons learned, and strengths and weaknesses as well as strategies for sustainability and future projects, including their next trip to Rwanda. Audience ideas and discussion are encouraged.
