Session 6A | Panel | Post-Custodial Praxis at LLILAS Benson: Lessons in Digitization, Access, and Community Partnerships

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

LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies & Collections works in partnership with archival organizations and community partners in Latin America to digitally preserve underrepresented histories and human rights documentation. By adopting a post-custodial archival model, we can support goals of digital preservation and access without physically removing collection materials from communities that use and identify with them. This panel will bring together archivists, partners, students, and scholars to share best practices, workflows, and lessons learned from a diverse array of post-custodial projects.
