Description

"You Say You Want a Revolution...": Combining Archives, Museums, and Libraries

What happens when you combine archivists, librarians, and museum curators into a single work group? Core identities and processes are challenged as professional boundaries are erased and redefined. The questions of who "we" are, what the fundamental boundaries of the profession are, where we are going, and how we are going to make it arise as the result of such a reorganization. Learn from the experiences of institutions in such a state of r/evolution.
