Cultural Heritage Collaborators: A Manual for Community Documentation
 

Authored by Melissa Mannon

"Collaboration" is not just a trendy buzzword in museums, libraries, and archives. Working together can propel stability, focus, and success for the 21st century. Establishing collecting partnerships within a community not only strengthens an institution's visibility, but also promotes cultural awareness and improves civic engagement.

Cultural Heritage Collaborators: A Manual for Community Documentation is a practical guide for cultural institutions that wish to work together to more fully document their local history. Archivist and cultural heritage consultant Melissa Mannon discusses the pervasiveness of archives throughout communities and argues that historical records serve as a cultural thread that supports local identity and the missions of diverse institutions.
