Help document the May 1st marches by donating photos, video, signs
SEATTLE (April 16, 2017) — The UW Libraries Special Collections is documenting and collecting items from the upcoming May 1st 2017 marches in the Puget Sound region.
We are interested in the following:
- Photographs and video of signs and crowd scenes. High-resolution files from DSLR cameras are preferred, but we will accept camera phone images. Please review your images and edit out blurry or repetitive ones. Send submissions to Ann Lally, UW Libraries Digital Collections Curator. Let her know that your submissions are for a labor or labor-related organization and provide the name of the organization/banner you marched behind. If you read about this in The Stand tell her the images are destined for the Labor Archives of Washington's Digital Collections.
- Labor-related physical signs and flyers used in the march. Contact Conor Casey, the UW Libraries Labor Archivist, to arrange for delivery or pick up of these items.
- Non-labor or signs without any working class/immigrant focus. Contact Anne Jenner, UW Libraries Pacific Northwest Curator, for details onhow to submit these items.
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.
