The Modern Endangered Archives Program (MEAP) is a new granting program at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Library. We fund projects designed to document, digitize and make accessible endangered archival materials from the 20th and 21st centuries, including print, photographic, film, audio, ephemeral, and born-digital objects. This program responds to the urgent need for preservation and dissemination of collections from the global south, at risk from environmental conditions, political uncertainty, inherently unsustainable media, inappropriate storage, or communal and social change. Once digitized, materials will be made freely and openly accessible at the UCLA Library website and preserved in perpetuity by the UCLA Library. We believe that providing open access to cultural and historical materials from around the world serves to expand discourse and challenge politicized and nationalized historical narratives that minimize or silence multiple voices and perspectives.
