Archives are treasure troves, full of rich pieces of history. However, the variety of materials can make accessibility a challenge. In this video, Rebekah Davis, Archivist at the Limestone County Archives in Athens, Alabama shows how she’s able to overcome this challenge and preserve and share the legacy of her county with her community. You’ll learn how leveraging automated workflows and an integrated portal in Starter, enables the community members of Limestone County to self-serve and find the content that they need.

Rebekah shares how this accessibility has unlocked major visibility for the archive, including:

  • How a local newspaper utilized the archive for historical articles
  • How members of the community were able to provide feedback through crowdsourcing to improve the record
