This is a book of interesting and useful lessons learned, where readers can benefit from what the authors suggest they could have done differently ...a valuable addition to the literature, and I hope it is widely used.
-- Sarah R. Demb * Information Management Magazine *
As this highly selective summary demonstrates, there is much in this volume for readers with a variety of interests, although not every case study will be of relevance to all...Nonetheless, there is real value in reading the studies as a whole. It will be thought-provoking for most readers, whether around the boundaries of our professional self-definition, the need to listen to communities in developing our work with them, or our understanding of linkages across the spectrum of what may be defined as heritage practice. -- Melinda Haunton * Archives and Records *
If you work in a college or university library and have ever tried to partner with a community group or heritage organization or are contemplating doing same, you will probably be well served by looking into this slim volume.
-- Michael Ryan * College & Research Libraries *
'In Participatory Heritage, editors Henriette Roued-Cunliffe and Andrea Copeland have created a valuable resource for archivists and other cultural heritage professionals navigating the treacherous intersection between the institutionalized repository and the eager and well-intentioned amateurs gathering and disseminating focused historical content via storefronts, websites, or social media.'- Brady M. Banta, Archivist, Dean B. Ellis Library, Associate Director, Heritage Studies PhD Program, Arkansas State University, Archival Issues * Archival Issues *
