Case studies on bridging the gap between the archivist and the researcher

APAC’s 2017 symposium, Bridging the Gap: The Role of the Archivist and the Researcher, explored this theme from several angles, hearing from both sides. In two presentations, university archivists explained how they have encouraged students to use their collections. Presentations from researchers showed how their involvement provided different ways in to opening up collections.

Following the symposium, three speakers produced these case studies, outlining approaches to bridging the gap.
