Join I&A for an engaging panel discussion with archivists from the Huntington Library, University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and the Mojave Desert Archives on archiving and displaying controversial collection material.

Additionally, I&A Research Teams will report on their achievements and the I&A Steering Committee will discuss opportunities to get involved, as well as brainstorm priorities for the coming year.
