Occupy Consortium


Occupied Stories

I recently came across Occupied Stories, a group that collects firsthand accounts of actions and events from Occupiers.  I got in touch with them about collaborating on gathering stories from Occupy Chicago that we can archive physically and digitally for our library.  Especially with the Chicago Spring and NATO/G8 protests on the horizon, I want to document as much as we can.  At last night’s GA, I put out a call for submissions, and I’m going to be promoting it via social media and our blog.

They were very receptive to working with us and excited about the possibilities.  I definitely recommend checking the site out and getting in touch if your library is interested in similarly collaborating with them.
