At many academic institutions, especially at the community college level, archive collections are neglected and even unintentionally mismanaged by well-meaning librarians. With limited funding, few institutions can afford to hire a full-time archivist. Yet community colleges are integral parts of their communities and their records contain valuable historical materials. Our story of our journey to make our archives accessible—despite an uncertain budget, the most basic technology, and staff push back—may inspire archivists in other institutions that are facing similar challenges.
