This first-of-its-kind guide bridges the gap between the archival field and the day-to-day concerns of preserving cultural and community records in the North--encompassing the upper latitudes of Canada and the United States. These Arctic and Subarctic regions are on the front lines of the climate crisis, making the urgent documentation and preservation of their histories, traditions, and ecological knowledge vital before they are lost or altered forever.
Co-authors Morgen Mills and Mark David Turner address the unique challenges faced by Northern communities in safeguarding their documentary heritage. As these records are intricately tied to their identity, history, and traditions, their preservation becomes crucial for maintaining continuity and promoting a sense of pride and belonging among community members.
Remotely Useful: Practical Lessons for Northern Community Archiving is part of the 2023 Pocket Burgundy series, which features concise publications on various topics within the information and cultural heritage communities.
