Historical Reminiscents EP 09: Demystifying Archival Labour – Access
New podcast episode!
In the final episode of my mini-series on “Demystifying Archival Labour” I talk about all the access and archival labour feels. I reflect on why access is at the core of what archivists do, why we don’t ‘just digitize everything’, and the challenges of managing researcher expectations. Missed part one of this series? Listen to it here.
Mentioned in this episode:
- Samantha Thompson, Peel Archives, “Why don’t archivists just digitize everything?“
- Stacie Williams, “Implications of Archival Labor“
- Anna St.Onge “Collaboration between archivists and historians: finding a middle ground“
