CFP: Survey on Dual Role as Archivist & Librarian

I am conducting a survey regarding the work experience of people with dual roles as archivists and librarians and I was wondering if you would send out the link to your members? I am also open to suggestions for other places to place the call. I am a long-time librarian recently moving into archives so I am very likely oblivious to the best spots to generate some interaction on the archival side.

Call for papers: IFLA Journal Special Issue on Libraries and COVID-19: Opportunities for Innovation

IFLA Journal is pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue exploring the adaptation and transformation of the library sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The widespread outbreak imposed sudden closures and brought about the need for the library sectors to find suitable modi operandi during times of confinement and social distancing. Library sector responses ranged from adopting coping strategies to embracing innovation: existing digital services were expanded, and traditional in-person services had to be migrated online, galvanizing the institutional planning for digital transformation. Planning for reopening was particularly challenging amid the unknowns of the continuing pandemic. This special issue aims to explore the nature of the ongoing change and transformation and to support library professionals in charting their institutions’ post-COVID19 strategic planning.

Archives in Context: Season 4

The Society of American Archivists (SAA) is delighted to present Season 4 of Archives in Context, a podcast highlighting archival literature and technologies, and most importantly, the people behind them.

  • Lae’l Hughes-Watkins and Tamar Chute on the influential Project STAND (Student Activism Now Documented);
  • Lydia Tang on her collaborative work to revise the Guidelines for Accessible Archives for People with Disabilities;
  • Ashley Farmer on her viral essay “Archiving While Black;”
  • Trevor Owens on his award-winning book The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation;
  • Liza Posas on the workbook she is developing for the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials;
  • Jennifer Johnson on her contribution to Leading and Managing Archives and Manuscripts Programs, volume 1 in SAA’s Archival Fundamentals Series III; and
