TA Archives’ Next Step
As Taiwanese American Archives is now being moved to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), we received much support from friends. Many friends also have questions about what TA Archives would do for the next step. We briefly outline few steps what TA Archives would do in the near future:
1. The Progress of the TA Archives Migration to UCSD:
a) UCSD Library will migrate the Photo Albums Section from TA Archives and integrate them into the digital resources for academic research.
b) We will readjust the website to make it more compatible and user-friendly. For example, add the filter function in the category of TA bio entries (Who's Who) to make information easily be searched.
2. Preserve the TA Special Collections in San Diego: We would negotiate with UCSD to find a space to preserve and exhibit the special collections to open the archives to the public in digital and museological formats.
3. Taiwan Center at UCSD will collaborate with Taiwan's leading research universities, libraries, and museums to bring in artists, visiting scholars, among many others, to give public talks, to show their artworks or documentary films, to launch books on Taiwan/Taiwanese American, and to organize multiple events. Hope to bring more events that would help make Taiwanese American communities more visible.
