Archiving AK episode 6: STEM

In episode 6 of Archiving AK, Arlene, Veronica, and Gwen talk about our preparations for participating in UAA’s STEM Day. We look at how science, technology, engineering and math materials appear in our collections and how they can be or have been used by researchers. We also talk about some of the issues that can crop up with describing and providing access to STEM materials, especially with medical research collections.
