CSRC Director Co-Authors Article on Collaborative Approaches to Latino Archives

Chon A. Noriega, CSRC director, and Tracy B. Grimm from the Purdue Libraries, Purdue University, co-authored the article "Documenting Regional Latino Arts and Culture: Case Studies for a Collaborative, Community-Oriented Approach" published in the Spring-Summer 2013 issue American Archivist (vol. 76, no.1). The paper presents two related initiatives, developed in dialogue over the past seven years, and outlines operational practices related to identification of collections in private hands, outreach, trust, and long-term relationships. The paper then provides a practical model and insights for overcoming the day-to-day challenges of identifying and preserving the documentary heritage of the Latino experience and challenges others to undertake such projects.
