Community Engagement

To carry out its mission, University Archives & Special Collections in the Joseph P. Healey Library at UMass Boston is committed to working with, promoting, and assisting community archives in the Greater Boston area through facilitating cross-organization collaboration and access to informational, educational, and practical resources relevant to archival procedures and best practices.

There are a number of ways for community members to get involved with University Archives & Special Collections programs and initiatives, from assistance with collections management and building, to work with the Mass. Memories Road Show.
