  • Description

    Archives are an access point for primary sources of history, but not all voices are heard in every collection. This poster will highlight the holdings of the University Archives at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. It will demonstrate how materials from minority populations in the community have been preserved through digitization and the steps taken to acquire voices from diverse student populations on campus. It will also discuss additional actions that archives should take.
