University of Massachusetts Preserves Local Southeast Asian Immigrant Stories (Media Coverage)
Publication: Library Journal
Date: 4/18/2019
Abstract: Lowell, MA, is home to the second-highest Cambodian population in the country, many of whom (or their families) settled there after fleeing genocide. Until recently, much of that history specific to the Lowell area from the 1970s on was not documented in a central location. The University of Massachusetts (Umass) Lowell is looking to change that, having recently launched its Southeast Asian Digital Archive (SEADA) to serve as a resource for the community, teachers, scholars, and more.
