How can academic institutions take a proactive approach to empowering communities to tell and preserve their own histories? Project leads/principal investigators and their partners share a variety of approaches to community archives partnerships between academic research libraries and under-documented communities. Panelists and their partners are asked to define what they see as parameters for success in initiating, developing, and sustaining community archives collaborations to transform the archival record and the archival profession.
