SESSION 206 - Before It's Lost in the Ether: Strategies for Collecting Current Undergraduate Records

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

University archivists face many challenges when collecting current undergraduate materials due to students not knowing about university archives or the creation of strictly electronic records. Presenters explore the research behind what undergraduates know and think about archives and under what circumstances they would consider contributing material. Presenters also share how they overcame collecting obstacles through outreach and finding new ways to acquire records from students.
