PLENARY 1: OPEN THE DOOR TO A MORE DIVERSE AND COLLABORATIVE FUTURE
Sponsored by: University of Florida
The boundaries of special collections and archives are fluid; they not only document our shared cultural heritage, they are integrally shaped by the cultural circumstances in which they exist. We must open our doors and our minds to find ways to continually engage in productive conversations. Speakers will share with us the importance of being culturally literate to allow dynamic collaborative partnerships and outreach endeavors, as well as help us imagine new possibilities for increasing continued diversity within our profession.
