Libraries and archives play a critical role in preserving and providing access to the collective memory of communities. Unfortunately, the resources for enabling archive holders to preserve cultural, social, political, and historical evidence are scarce and urgently required.

This talk will highlight UCLA Libraryâs international initiatives aimed at addressing these challenges, with a focus on the International Digital Ephemera Project (IDEP) and Documenting Global Voices (DGV). The goal of these programs is to preserve and provide broad, public access to at-risk materials. The presentation will provide an overview of both programs including the benefits and challenges of the different post-custodial models employed for each.
