Detainee Letters at SDSU: Managing Change and Creating Opportunity Through Islandora

In October 2018, a grassroots organization called Otay Allies donated a large collection of letters collected from detainees held at the Otay Mesa Detention Center to San Diego State University. The University’s Institutional Repository became, to our knowledge, the first of its kind to create and maintain a digital collection that serves to share and make accessible the stories of hundreds of refugees from around the world in real time. This session presentation will discuss the changes, challenges, and opportunities encountered during the creation and management of the collection using Islandora.
