Untold Histories: About the Display

This guide provides further information about the Untold Histories display currently showcased at Noble Library

About the Display

This display aims to show students how history can be told in ways outside of traditional academic work. This collection contains poetry, graphic novels, personal narratives, nonfiction, and oral history, all curated towards revealing the often untold history of marginalized communities.

This display was curated by student workers Claudio Garcia, Preetpal Gill Victoria Perez-Carranza, and Gricelda Terrazas.

About Future of Print

Print is not dead. In this era of digital media, as university libraries worldwide are significantly reducing their open stack print collections, vital conversations are needed in the development of new design strategies and methodologies for print curation in the 21st century. Future of Print is a three-year project exploring a data-driven and community-aware approach to developing inclusive print collections for the reopening of Hayden Library in 2020.

About Community Driven Archives

Latinxs, African Americans, Asian Americans, and the LGBT community make up over 42% of Arizona's population but are only represented in 0-2% of known archival collections. The Community Driven Archives is a three-year project designed to address this inequality, through building and expanding community-driven collections in an effort to preserve and improve Arizona's archives.
