Many of us in the field know that archives are essential, but sometimes it feels like a best-kept secret. It's challenging to convey the true value of our collections despite our best efforts with digital content, social media, and other outreach and awareness activities. It's time to unleash the full potential of heritage collections and archives and we'll show you how. This webinar will review historic outreach challenges, and how they've been compounded and complicated by larger global events in 2020. And in honor of Archives Month, we will explore proactive and actionable responses to these challenges--including relevant examples and additional voices.
