    Join SCA for the first in a series of monthly virtual meetings via Zoom while we are unable to gather in person. On Friday, August 14th, from 12 to 1:30 pm, we will spend the first hour discussing the Archives for Black Lives in Philadelphia Anti-Racist Description Resources and create action items for our own work. We will plan to reconvene in a few months to discuss our progress on the action items.

    In the last half-hour of the meeting, we will have an open discussion around labor issues of interest to meeting participants. SCA wants to hear from archives workers in California about pressing issues around labor, what it can do for its members, and what can be addressed in future meetings. We may use breakout rooms to accommodate smaller group discussions.

    Feel free to join for one or both of the meeting components! If you're joining for the discussion of the Anti-Racist Description Resources, please read them before the meeting.

    Please RSVP for this meeting on this page and register via Zoom in advance. Details for the meeting are below:

    Tell Us How UC It: Thinking Critically through a Living Archive for Student Activism

    Tuesday, August 18, 2020
    11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time)

    Webinar Description:

    The Tell Us How UC It: A Living Archive project is a grassroots effort created by a diverse group of four women at the UC San Diego Library as an alternative way to highlight awareness, provide a space for dialogue, preserve and document the events related to student activism at UC San Diego. The project includes a timeline of campus student activism, student creative work and real-time feedback from the community on issues they face, physical exhibits, and an online collection. Some results of the project have been course instruction, participation in trainings for Resident Advisors and Teaching Assistants on interacting with the campus community and within EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) courses, a workshop on organizing for action, collaboration with campus groups, and inclusion in the national initiative Project STAND (STudent Activism Now Documented). 

    This webinar, presented by Tamara Rhodes (Librarian for Psychology, Cognitive, Science, Human Developmental Sciences, and Linguistics, UC San Diego Library) and Cristela Garcia Spitz (Digital Initiatives Librarian, UC San Diego Library), will share critical strategies and practical approaches for planning and advocating for this kind of project, and a focus on how partnerships are invaluable to this work.

    The cost is $10 for SCA members; $5 for student members; $20 for non-members; and $5 for unemployed or precariously employed individuals. All registrants will receive a link to the webinar recording after the webinar is completed.
