The Accidental “Archivist”: Collaborating Across Campuses and Communities to Preserve the Grenfell Campus, Memorial University Archive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many small archival collections across Canada, particularly in rural areas, have no Archivist and no budget. How can Librarians and Archivists work together to ensure that these materials are preserved and accessible? What support is needed to strengthen and protect archives in our region? Learn about one collaboration between the Grenfell Campus Archive (and its collection of oral histories of communities in Newfoundland and Labrador), Memorial University Libraries, and the Corner Brook Museum and Archive.
