New Blog Series: Archivists on the Issues

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 9:28 AM | Deleted user

From SAA's Issues & Advocacy Roundtable, a new initiative to discuss critical issues affecting the archives profession:

We’re not even halfway through 2015 yet, but it appears to be a rather dramatic year for archives. From records management issues in universities to questionable email practices of public officials to laws that appear to be throwbacks to the early twentieth-century, there’s a lot going on that can affect both archives and archivists. With that in mind, the Issues & Advocacy Roundtable is launching a blog series called Archivists on the Issues and are looking for contributors.

Entries should discuss how a particular issue in the news affected or could potentially affect you as an archivist and/or your collections. Unless contributors indicate otherwise, each post will be published anonymously. Institutional information will be limited to broad identifiers, i.e. college/university, government, corporate, etc. Please limit submissions to 500 words. We encourage multiple entries on the same topic, as well as rebuttals, and hope to generate a rich conversation about the issues confronting our profession.

Please send your submissions to archivesissues@gmail.com. We are also happy to receive ideas for posts and provide feedback.
