Mon, 29 Aug 2016 13:05:03 +0000

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 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 […]
