Library Assistant Professor Publishes in American Archivist
June 22, 2018
Assistant Professor Ashlyn Velte with Library Special Collections and Archives published a study titled "Ethical Challenges and Current Practices in Activist Social Media Archives" in The American Archivist Vol. 81, No. 1 Spring/Summer 2018 112–134. Ashlyn's first publication in the top journal describes ethical challenges regarding acquisition and access to activist social media archives. Results from the study may help decrease the risk that these important records of modern activism will be left out of the historical narrative.
