Joseph A. Labadie Collection posters are now available online so they can be used for research by anyone. Julie Herrada, curator of the Labadie Collection, describes the digitization process from beginning to end, including early failed attempts, a formal conservation assessment, metadata creation by an amateur, copyright skirmishes, and more. The Labadie Collection contains a wide range of topics and formats including books, pamphlets, photographs, buttons, archives, posters, and ephemera on social protest movements from the 19th century to the present. There are over 2,000 posters in the collection ranging in date from 1900 to 2015 on topics including anarchism; labor and the working class; socialism; environmental, anti-colonialist and anti-war movements; feminism and LGBTQ; youth and student protests. Some are rare, some iconic. The posters’ size and fragility make them difficult not only to store properly, but also to catalog and provide access to users.
