UK Libraries has held a series of archives workshops to help community organizations preserve and manage their records. In this session, archivists and attendees share personal and professional reasons for hosting/attending the workshop, workshop challenges and successes, and more. Featured are audio and video clips from interviews with community members who attended the workshops. An open forum follows to discuss:

  • What are individual and community needs and interests?
  • Is sharing knowledge through a workshop setting enough?
  • What barriers prevent individual or community collaborations with repositories? How can these be removed or lowered?
  • And more!
