University Special Collections as Community Spaces
Endorsed by the OAH Committee on Public History
A discussion about how university-based special collections and the larger community intersect. This roundtable brings together five scholars and archivists to discuss not only the importance of creating bridges between university-based special collections and the community, but also introduces five distinct case studies that showcase how this is being done. Our goal for this roundtable is to share our work but also to critically examine sustainable ways we can create meaningful relationships between the community and special collections.
