604 - Put That Thing Back Where it Came From or So Help Me: Displaced Records Go Home

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

What goes where? It can be a monster of a problem when a donation arrives on your doorstep that has little or no connection to your community or institution. Additional problems arise when a collection that logically belongs in your repository is housed elsewhere. Academic and local government archivists share their stories of finding the proper home for--or bringing home--historical records, and discuss options for community collaborations.

Davis: Old Records Find New Love in Community Archives
Dunn: Dear Diary: Where Do You Belong?
George: Connecting Collections with the Heritage Coordinating Council
Merryman: Forging Connections for the Disconnected
Heatherly: An International Affair: Luis Benejam and His Music Scores
