P07 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - The Value of Braille in Archival Collections

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

Braille is a dynamic format uniquely capable of documenting the lives of those who use it, yet it is often misunderstood by both archivists and the public. Misconceptions about long-term value and interest to researchers both sighted and blind keep many Braille collections hidden. This poster highlights Braille collections processing at the Jacobus tenBroek Library and offers simple and effective strategies for working with tactile collections, without the need to learn Braille.
