The archives and special collections library communities – as part of the global community – face prospective major shifts in our energy systems, economic models, and literal landscapes. Current and predicted impacts associated with climate change offer highly varied and unpredictable effects on our collections, collecting, facilities, services, funding, users, communities, and professional lives. This conference invites attendees and the broader archives and special collections communities to a candid and forward-looking conversation about our work in the era of climate change.
