Our session examines how different approaches to foregrounding marginalized groups and individuals have revitalized established collections at three archival repositories. Connecting with campus partners, rearranging physical contents and updating descriptive terminology, and applying non-traditional methods to archival selection will be among the diverse strategies discussed to move underrepresented groups from the margins to the center of our collections and missions.
