Archives Week 2017 -- Documenting Human Rights Advocacy: An Open House with Archivists, Archives and Librarians at The Center for Human Rights Documentation & Research

Columbia Libraries' Center for Human Rights Documentation & Research holds one of the single largest collections of human rights archives in the country, including the records of groups such as Amnesty International USA, Human Rights Watch, and the Committee to Protect Journalists. RBML staff archivists and Columbia librarians will discuss their work– the processing of collections, the preparing of finding aids and the development of the Human Rights Web Archive. In this regard, a wide variety of items from the Columbia’s human rights collections will be placed on display during the open house. Collections will include: Amnesty International USA, the Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch, Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, Records of the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League to Champion Human Rights, and the Telford Taylor Papers. Web curators will display the Human Rights Web Archive, a collection of over 700 websites, preserved from 2008 to the present.
