This session explores how Tokyo-area graduate archival students and faculty teamed up with Houston-area archivists to support and inspire each other while collaborating around issues affected by diverse cultural approaches to management, technology, metadata, research, and privacy. Together they created a pilot project using atomic-bomb-related material to learn how to implement a large-scale international digital project that gives online access to researchers and the public.
