Submit your questions now for Session #309: Reaching Across Boundaries: Archives in Multiple Languages
Thursday, August 16, 2018, 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Our panel seeks attendee participation for Session 309. We encourage participants to ask questions based on their own collections, and experiences with sensitivity, respect, and community engagement.

The focus of the archival profession on improving diversity and promoting transparency provides an opportunity for archivists to embrace multilingual, non-English, and non-verbal collections that may already be in our archives and to find ways to welcome them if they have not previously been included. The panelists will build on their experiences processing collections with multiple foreign languages, working with non-verbal collections (including art work, sculpture, and other media), disability access and collecting, and promoting international and bilingual communications about archival principles and practices. The panel is intended to be non-traditional discussion forum for the benefits and potential problems of encouraging multi-lingual collections, working with communities that are unfamiliar with archives and archivists, and challenges to processing collections in methods of communication
