The city of Charlottesville and University of Virginia were the focus of right-wing rallies in the summer of 2017. Afterward, a team of library staff was quickly assembled to work through collecting and preserving the local community's experience. We share our processes and steps taken to create an online submission environment, resolve legal and technical issues, create collecting criteria, resolve curatorial decisions, and approach work with local partners to collect community stories.

Brandon Butler: Legal and Copyright Aspects
Ivey Glendon: General Metadata Aspects
