ASU Library has both in-house and grant-funded collections.
The Community-Driven Archive Initiative was established in 2017 with the purpose of highlighting the stories and histories of Latine, Black, Asian-Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ communities.
Jessica Salow, specialist for University Archives, said this initiative was to engage those communities and let them know that their stories and histories matter.
“There is a historical gap within the archival records here in Arizona that only zero to 2% of known archives represent each of those particular communities,” Salow said.
