Stephanie at SNCA 2018

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 16:09:31 +0000

It was a whirlwind Society of NC Archivists meeting for me this year due to my responsibilities as Education Committee chair. In addition to organizing three workshops for SNCA’s traditional pre-conference workshop day and presenting one of our Education awards, I was also a member of the conference program committee. SNCA Education offered three workshops […]

As a member of the ZSR Web Archiving Team (along with Stephanie Bennett, Rebecca May and Kevin Gilbertson), I was interested to attend the workshop offered by SNCA (Society of North Carolina Archivists) at Duke University last week. Our group has been able to capture much of the content we want under the and […]

Kevin at Designing for Digital 2018

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 17:49:14 +0000

In early March, I attended my first Designing for Digital conference—online. Established in 2015 as an extension of the ER&L conference, Designing for Digital focuses on user experience, design and discovery, and usability in libraries. And I have to say, my (user) experience of the conference was great. Much of my enjoyment was in the […]

Alice at ER&L 2018

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 14:28:47 +0000

Going to Austin for the Electronic Resources and Libraries conference was a great way to remember what temperatures above 50 feel like. I could go on about the weather but that might imply that I didn’t attend any sessions. Luring me inside were the snacks and drinks strategically placed in front of the session rooms. […]

This March I attended The Collective 2018 gathering in Knoxville, TN. This is the 4th annual Collective gathering, a relatively new non-profit professional organization that aims to “disrupt, reinvent, and redefine” the professional library conference through a model of active learning, collaboration, and practitioner-focused content. The theme for this year’s meeting was “The Library as Test […]

Creating Archival Enclosures with a Sewing Machine

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 14:00:24 +0000

In October, 2017, I toured the Conservation Lab at the University of Washington, Seattle. During this tour, I saw how they used a sewing machine to encapsulate documents and photographs. (I wrote about my tour of the lab in my post about the Guild of Book Workers Seminar in October, 2017)). I asked a number […]

Hu at FYE 2018

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 18:49:25 +0000

While there have been 37 First-Year Experience Conferences, this is only my fourth. My first FYE conference was in 2008, and I try to attend this annual conference as often as possible! The focus on first-year students draws together faculty and staff from across the academy. While it’s great to hear presentations on library-related topics […]

I am in the last 6 months of a 3 year elected term as Director-at-Large and […]

MBL@ALAMW18in Denver

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 17:17:06 +0000

ALA Midwinter 18 in Denver commenced just as a debilitating snowstorm was moving across the northern tier of states. While the storm didn’t impact our travel, (I was travelling with Susan and our path took us from GSO to Charlotte to Denver) it did have a significant impact to how I spent my time this […]
