Presentation at Open Hearts, Open Minds: Libraries Serving Latino Communities Summary

An Orange County REFORMA Workshop
Orange Public Library
March 31, 2012

The presentation by Richard Chabran, Norma Corral, Lizette Guerra and Lillian Castillo-Speed included asking several questions of the audience. In response to the question? What does Latino digital archives mean to you? Responses covered disciplines such as history and literature -- to objects such as old buildings, video, and landmarks -- to actions such as what we did to change our communities. In response to the question of how digital archives should be accessed, responses focused on social networks and nationwide projects that would make the information accessible to all wherever they are. The conference was attended by public and academic librarians, library school students, and high school students that are participating in local REFORMA programming and grant-related activities.


  1. It was a great event. I really enjoyed the presentation and the potential for some really interesting progress to be made in this field.
