Archiving Student Activism Toolkit

The Archiving Student Activism Toolkit Committee (ASATC) must be attuned to the shifting needs of student organizers and archivists/memory workers and try to stay on top of trends and social movements taking place in vulnerable and marginalized student populations. (ASATC) will assist in building out modules for the toolkit that may intersect with the needs of the Educator’s Toolkit. Committee members will make recommendations for updates to the toolkit and will generate annual forms and interviews as tools to gather data on the strengths and weaknesses of the toolkit.

Collections Assessment Committee

The Collections Assessment Committee (CAC) will play a critical role in reviewing the data from the collection assessments. The CAC will make recommendations for new areas of data collection for the assessment form. But CAC must also review data to unpack what is revealed by the assessments—what areas potentially are the weakest areas of collection within the consortium, what are the strongest areas of collection development? The group will work with the WDI team on recommendations for data visualization. The group must also keep up with what new/old members have not submitted an assessment form. They will also need to work in collaboration with the Collection Features Committee and make recommendations on what collections should be highlighted.

Collection Features Review Committee

The members of the Collection Features Review (CFR) group will have the opportunity to advocate for and highlight the collections within the consortia. The committee should highlight six collections a year. The committee will work with the archivist/memory workers curating the collection to do an interview and gather more information/context for each collection. Each collection highlight must include image(s) for each collection review). The interviews will be highlighted on the main page and added to Project STAND’s blog. CFR will also highlight any upcoming exhibitions by consortia members.

Educator’s Toolkit Committee

The Educator’s Toolkit Committee (ETC) will rely heavily on utilizing the Archiving Student Activism Toolkit to build out resources for its toolkit. The Educator’s Toolkit will also rely on the collections highlighted within the consortia and building out theme resources based on holdings with Project STAND members based on the collection assessments. The toolkit will utilize a critical pedagogy approach.  The toolkit should include the following:

·   Reference to specific collections

·   Reference to peer reviewed publications

·   Social media (Medium, YouTube, related Twitter accounts to follow, Instagram accounts)

·   Books and other relevant print publications
