Project STAND

Here’s the link to Project STAND I mentioned last night in class in case anyone is interested. After looking at it more closely, the project is aimed at creating a central repository for archival collections focused on student activism on college campuses. Although there are more current movements (there’s a few Twitter Archives), there’s also links to collections and finding aids from 1960’s to present.

I’ve seen a few of these types of archival projects where a central repository is chosen to host related collections and materials. The Puerto Rico Syllabus project noted it could be enhanced “by the inclusion of primary texts and historical documents…” so I, personally, feel like the natural next step would be to combine the two project models.
