Feedback form is now closed.
As researcher demand for access to archival materials in virtual spaces increases, archivists are challenged to place more contemporary material online than ever before. In particular, given the current climate of activism and it's antecedents in the 1950's and 1960's, the interest in papers related to civil rights history online have provided opportunities to evaluate collections for publications online. Three archivists will discuss materials related to the Civil Rights Era in their respective repositories and the steps taken to digitize and publish collections. Discussion topics include processing and evaluating collections for digitization, copyright and permissions, and collaboration and outreach.
