SESSION 405 - Access Under Occupation: Archival Collections in Palestine

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Members of a recent delegation of librarians and archivists to Palestine discuss the effects of war and occupation on access to archival collections in the region. They examine: barriers to access experienced by international researchers and Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank; specific collections that currently are unavailable to researchers; and current projects to increase access through recovery of materials, digitization, and collection.
