Session Description
How do archivists re-examine access restrictions and records laws when the archival materials in question document under-represented communities who wish to have their story told? Archivists from the University of Colorado Boulder discuss how community needs led them to create new, innovative access policies for law enforcement files, grand jury records, and human subject research in collections related to Chicanx and Southern Ute communities, as well as communities affected by nuclear activity.
