During February 2014

Rebecca at the Modern Archives Institute

Recently, I had the great pleasure of attending the Modern Archives Institute (MAI) at the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) in Washington, DC.

Steve at 2014 ALA Midwinter

I spent Friday afternoon at the Asian Arts Initiative, where I heard talks on the South Asian American Digital... more

Mary Beth at ALAMW in Philadelphia

My ALA Mid-Winter meeting this year was different from any other midwinter I’ve attended before.
