The full day program for NYAC 2020 will include sessions on a variety of topics, including the challenges of milestone anniversaries, finding aid aggregation, collaborative exhibits, and a keynote presentation by Geof Huth and Karen Jamison Trivette on sharing the stories of archivist before and during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition to the virtual presentations, there will be Poster Session Presentations that can be visited on Google Docs. Listen to audio recordings of the presenters discussing their projects and research, look at the posters and engage by asking questions in the Discussion section!
Although we regret that our in-person conference had to be cancelled, our attendees and presenters’ health and safety is of the utmost importance. Luckily, we live in a time where we can connect while still being apart. We look forward to giving our members a professional development opportunity from the comfort and safety of their own homes. This would not be possible without the flexibility of our speakers who have shifted their presentations to a virtual environment and we thank them for their continued willingness. Additionally, our thanks goes out to our sponsors University Products, Polygon and Empire State Library Network for their support of this conference.
Please remember to show kindness. This is ours and many of our presenters’ first experience with a virtual conference. Stay safe and enjoy NYAC 2020’s Virtual Conference!
NOTE: Although the conference is free, you must still register in order to get the link that allows you to attend.
