Feedback form is now closed.
A robust understanding of archival processing can affect how patrons understand the contexts of the collections, how archivists teach archival literacy, how curators work with donors to acquire material, and how we ourselves understand and advocate for technical services work and the resources to support it.  The panelists explore ways to increase the visibility of technical services work, through both critical/theoretical and practical lenses, and how such visibility can transform how archival work is perceived and understood.
