The UW Libraries Special Collections and its Labor Archives of Washington are documenting and collecting items from the upcoming May 1, 2017, marches in the Puget Sound region.
We are interested in your:
► Photographs and video of signs and crowd scenes. High-resolution files from DSLR cameras are preferred, but they will accept camera phone images. Please review your images and edit out blurry or repetitive images. To make submissions, email Ann Lally, UW Libraries digital collections curator, and in the email title or text:
- Tell her your submissions are for a labor or labor-related organization and name the organization/banner you marched behind
- That they are destined for the Labor Archives of Washington’s digital collections.
► Labor-related physical signs and flyers used in the march. Email me, UW Libraries Labor Archivist Conor Casey, to arrange for delivery pickup of your items.
► Signs without any labor or working class/immigrant worker focus can be sent to Anne Jenner, UW Libraries Pacific Northwest curator. Email her for details.
You will be required to sign a donor form for any materials given to the UW Libraries. This form allows future researchers to use your images or materials in books, documentaries, etc. If you have questions about the donor form or copyright, email Conor Casey.
For general questions, email Ann Lally, UW Libraries digital collections curator.
