CAMP/Title VI African Archives Cooperative Projects
The Cooperative Africana Microform Project (CAMP) works with institutions in Africa to build preservation and digitization capacity and to preserve valuable research resources for use by scholars in Africa, North America, and elsewhere. CAMP is supported in part through annual contributions from the Title VI National Resource Centers for African Studies.
Examples of previous and current projects supported by CAMP include:
- Microfilming of colonial-era archives in the National Archives of Senegal [Direction des Archives du Sénégal]
- Preservation training for West African librarians in microfilming, digitization, and conservation of resources
- Support for conservation and preservation of the personal papers of Liberian president William V. S. Tubman
- Support for microfilming of contemporary newspapers from Liberia, Mauritius, and Tanzania
Project direction is provided by the Title VI NRC library liaisons of the the Africana Librarians Council (ALC) and by the CAMP Executive Committee.
