About Documentation Lab




Documentation Lab is an informal group of archivists, educators, and memory workers sharing resources and experiences related to personal, family, and community archives.

Our 2022 workshops have been informed and made possible by the University of Pittsburgh’s Engaged Scholarship Development Initiative Summer Design Intensive
By convening community conversations and workshops, we hope to strengthen relationships between community-based archivists and memory workers and those employed in larger institutionsor enrolled in the Masters of Library and Information Science at the University of Pittsburgh.


Documentation Lab supports archival work, but we aren’t an archives. We don’t collect materials or maintain collections. Our focus is on identifying and facilitating meaningful forms of support and connection for memory workers.
