Over the last year, I have been trying to visit private, collegiate and small university libraries to assess trends and get design ideas. I documented my visit to our doppelgänger library at Bucknell last January and in September I visited the Belk Library at Elon University. Last Friday I visited E.H. Little Library at Davidson […]

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 20:18:29 +0000

Late last month I attended the Digital Directions Conference in Denver, Colorado, from September 26-28. This is an annual conference that attracts professionals in the field of digitization and digital preservation. The conference caters more-so to organizations that are in the developing stages of their digitization operations. But there was also some in-depth content for […]

I recently returned from the Society of American Archivists annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia—it was a bit warm, but a nice shower every afternoon cooled things off. I am “in-between” on some of my governance duties and so I had the opportunity to attend some programming. In addition, all of the sessions are now available […]

SAA 2016, finally

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 19:11:31 +0000

I had an unusually busy Society of American Archivists meeting in Atlanta earlier this month, and I will blame the delay in writing this on all the other writing I’ve been doing after the meeting to advertise and inform fellow archivists about the meeting’s work. My whirlwind week went Monday through Saturday and included: Attending […]
