Collaboration with non-archivists takes place in many settings. For example, Towson University archivists built relationships with unlikely campus partners and discovered how to talk about archives work and how to listen to partner needs in return. Trexler Library at Muhlenberg College partnered with Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, navigating different, sometimes competing agendas, conveying the importance of preserving personal stories and new voices, while creating an inclusive, friendly environment. Erie Yesterday, composed of regional museums and historical societies, works collaboratively to promote, preserve, and maintain Erie County’s heritage and applies for joint grants. Come discover how collaboration occurs among these diverse communities.
