Improving Access And Discovery Of Lgbtqia+ Materials Across Collection Services Workflows, Alexandra Degraffenreid, Gideon Goodrich

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

In addition, the development of LGBTQIA+ community-generated resources allow archivists to more easily understand and implement the perspectives of queer communities to make archival resources more accessible to and discoverable by those communities. This article will discuss how a special collections library is improving the accessibility of their holdings relating to LGBTQIA+ histories by: 1) auditing archival description …

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

This review situates Disputed Archival Heritage, ed. James Lowry, the 2023 winner of the Waldo Gifford Leland Award of the Society of American Archivists, within the wider context of Anglophone North American archivists' provinciality. The book provides a series of well-researched case studies, some based on personal experiences, which illuminate the history of archives and cultural heritage collections that have been contested by multiple geopolitical entities or their archival representatives. Inclusion of stories from the global South is one of the innovative facets of the book that improves upon the volume Displaced Archives (2017), also edited by James Lowry.
