Resources Produced

The resources are geared toward building an ecosystem of care, including knowledge sharing and collaborative learning between a network of information professionals who have expressed an interest and commitment to ethically engaging with student organizers. The theme for our first residency was: Archiving in Black: Student Organizing at HBCU’s and Cross-Cultural Movements. This section is a series of educational resources throughout 2021 created by our fellows during our first residency. During the first residency, our phenomenal fellows created resources focusing on privacy and digital archiving.

The document provides a path for ethical and transparent discourse, specifically for vulnerable communities concerned for their personal well-being related to the documentation, preservation, and access of records about their on-campus/off-campus activism.

Privacy Consent Form

The following form will assist with records that may include sensitive materials related to student organizing. The form gives students the ability to outline privacy/restriction concerns when submitting records to College/University Archives or other institutions.
