Arizona State University: ASU Library archivists make marginalized history accessible to all

Arizona State University: ASU Library archivists make marginalized history accessible to all. “Thanks to the efforts of head project archivist [Alana] Varner and her team, a large portion of the Bj Bud Memorial Archives, the largest LGBT collection in Arizona, will soon be accessible online, to anyone, anywhere. Over the next two years, the grant will also allow for three of the library’s other unique and most consistently utilized archives to be accessed online. They are: the Maricopa County Organizing Project (MCOP) Records, detailing local farmworker and civil rights history from 1960-1990; the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Collection, which tells the story of the oldest active Latino civil rights organization in the U.S.; and the Alianza Hispano Americana Records, which tells the story of the oldest Latino mutual aid society.”
