The Queens Memory Project is a dynamic testament of collective memory for the residents of Queens, New York; the most diverse county in the United States. The interviews and archival records gathered here from many sources document the borough’s people and places; their differences, their changes over time, and their strong ties to one another.
The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services, a division of the American Library Association, honored The Queens Memory Project with the 2012 Outstanding Collaboration Citation: "... for creating a project which is likely to become an industry standard; and for demonstrating the type of collaboration that can help keep libraries vital and important for years to come..."
