506 - Immigration Archival Collections: Difference, Transnationality, Relevance

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

The conversation about the preservation of the country's immigration history as a specific subject of archival work has largely been left to specialists rather than integrated within discussions in the archival profession. Session participants address the issues of international cooperation, provenance and custodial responsibility, balanced ethnic and cultural representation, working with immigrant communities on collection development, and innovative collaborative processing projects while accommodating and negotiating foreign-language materials and different cultural traditions.
