In an increasingly connected world, archival institutions can cultivate greater inclusion through a thoughtful and practical approach to language. Drawing from the experiences of different institutions, the panelists discuss how their institutions have addressed the intentional implementation of multilingual services, including bilingual finding aids, hiring bilingual staff, translating reference material, and implementing tools to create metadata for non-English material. Participants will break into three groups to focus on description/processing, reference/public services, and tools/methods.
