Arizona State University: ASU awarded Mellon grant to develop community-driven archival collections. “Now an archivist at ASU Library, [Nancy] Godoy has worked tirelessly to grow its Chicano Research Collection and expand the library’s reach to the Latino community through public outreach that includes educational workshops on preservation of historic materials. In recognition of that work, Godoy and colleagues Sujey Vega and Lorrie McAllister were recently awarded a $450,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for a three-year project designed to build and expand community-driven collections, in an effort to preserve and improve Arizona’s archives and give voice to historically marginalized communities.”
