POLL: What does diversifying the archival record mean to you?
Most archivists agree that diversity in the archival record is important, but what exactly does that look like? SAA's Diversity Committee wants to know. Send us your thoughts. Ask your friends and colleagues. Pass the question on to your professional interest groups. Answers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Diversifying the Archival Record" or posted publicly below on or before November 8.
The SAA Diversity Committee is working on a project to gather case studies that illustrate diversity in the archival record and would like to collect broad member feedback on what that means from a variety of perspectives. Information will help inform a call for case studies and will be shared with other diversity-related actions across the organization (see SAA's 2013-2018 Strategic Plan http://www2.archivists.org/governance/strategic-plan).
