Season 10, Episode 3: Archiving Through the Pandemic

March 9, 2023

About This Episode

Of the many roles the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum plays, an important one is serving as the place where original documents, photographs, audio, film, and other artifacts from John F. Kennedy's presidency are stored and preserved. And though his presidency ended 60 years ago this year, archivists are still busy working with the original materials to make them available to the public.

While the pandemic interrupted some of the Library's normal activities, archivists used the time to reduce a large digital backlog of materials waiting to be published online. In this episode, we speak to two of the JFK Library's reference archivists, Stacey Chandler and Abbey Malangone, about their recent work in the archives.
