In 2011 the world commemorated the 30th anniversary of the AIDS epidemic. Soon after archivists started hearing about the new disease, they began collecting materials chronicling how it was affecting communities and the response to it. Archives were striving to build holdings that include voices of diverse participants in the struggle to conquer the epidemic, including the GLBT community, volunteer organizations, researchers and clinicians, and local governments. Archivists from a variety of institutions discuss their HIV/AIDS archives.
