Ask An Appalachian Archivist

Many of us have worked in small organization as one of just a few – or the only! – person responsible for the archives. It can be a lonely situation, particularly now as many of us are isolated at home with only limited access to our physical collections, if any access at all. That’s why the Special Collections Committee has come together to provide an Ask an Archivist feature. Send your questions to and you’ll be put in touch with someone who had can answer your question, or who has worked on a similar project. Questions can range from the needing advice on storage materials, creating release forms for oral histories and donations, advice for going about a community project, or anything else related to our work and missions. We’re all in this together!
