Sound of the Archives meets South Asian American Digital Archive … and GREAT THINGS HAPPEN. Samip Mallick, founder of SAADA, talks about the concepts the community archive is founded upon, such as a post-custodial model and digital repatriation. He also speaks about things that every archival institution needs to think about: metadata and outreach!

“A community without its records is a community under siege,
defending itself, its identity, and its version of history
without a firm foundation on which to stand.”
