SAA's Committee on Public Awareness (COPA) was formed to assist with promotion of "the value of archives and archivists." In this special focus session, COPA members share initiatives that have generated the most buzz and then engage the audience in a discussion to brainstorm outreach strategies, solutions to outreach obstacles, and how we can better engage with communities that may have barriers to accessing archives, but should be included in our awareness efforts.
