608 - More than Lip Service: Ensuring the Trans* Voice is Part of the Archival Record

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

If the goal of archives is to provide all-encompassing documentation of the communities in which they exist, then archivists need to make pointed efforts to collect materials from all members and groups of those communities, including all possible identities along the gender identity spectrum. The panelists examine efforts to include trans* history in the archival record and discuss various aspects of the archival process, including collecting, arrangement and description, access, and promotion.
