New Indigenous Digital Archive opens at University  of New Mexico Libraries

"The Indigenous Digital Archive (IDA) makes archives easier to use than ever before. It allows researchers to work more naturally and more socially with archives. If researchers want to share their work online, they can connect information, enhance individual, family, and community histories. It also allows users to correct the record and write counter-narratives to what is found in government records. For those who prefer their work to remain private, there is still the ability to easily keep track of and/or cite individual pages, or to share documents and images on social media."
