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.
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.
The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
