2019 Survey

In 2019, the RoPA Developers conducted a nationwide survey about participatory archiving to inform the development of the Roadmap.

The survey results, published in January 2020, capture the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of libraries and other cultural organizations with experience doing participatory archiving events and those that are exploring the idea of hosting an event. UASC collected survey responses from 208 respondents representing 33 states and the District of Columbia: 123 libraries (public, private, university, and K-12), 46 cultural heritage organizations, and 25 government agencies, as well as other institutions.
