Fall/Winter 2019 Issue of American Archivist

Half of the content—including 11 articles and reviews—from the latest American Archivist is now online! Articles examine the roles of archivists and catalogers, consider virtual reality experiences for archival collections, reflect on the adoption of EAD twenty years later, highlight a case study for reassessing audiovisual materials, and more. Start reading now (you’ll need to log in to access the issue).

There’s more in the pipeline. The journal is experimenting with “advance article publication,” meaning that content will continue to be published online as it becomes available for this issue. The print edition, which will include the volume index, is projected to be available by March. View the entire table of contents for the issue.

New Journal: Unbound: A Journal of Digital Scholarship

from the Digital Humanities Discussion Group (ALA):

Hello, Everyone:

I’m excited this morning to announce the launch of Unbound: A Journal of Digital ScholarshipUnbound publishes work that explores the interstices of digital scholarship, broadly conceived, with an emphasis on digital cultural studies; critical digital humanities; galleries, libraries, archives, and museums; the interpretive social sciences; and socially engaged computational or quantitative methods. This open access journal publishes editorials, essays, reviews, pedagogy and praxis notes (short form works on research in progress, single-institution case studies, and pedagogy), and new media art, music, and performance portfolios. We welcome submissions from scholars and professionals at all stages of professional development in all fields.

In addition to publishing original scholarship, Unbound is the venue for the proceedings of the Digital Frontiers conference, and related satellite events. The first issue features essays and abstracts from Realizing Resistance: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Star Wars, Episodes VII, VIII & IX, which took place May 2-4, 2019 at the University of North Texas.

I am joined on the Editorial Board by John Edward Martin (UNT), Leigh Bonds (Ohio State), Jenn Stayton (UNT), Kevin Jenkins (Penn State), Adetty Pérez de Miles (Texas State), Joshua Jackson (North Carolina State), and Brea Henson (UNT). The journal is published by Digital Frontiers and hosted by the University of North Texas Libraries.
The Call for Contributions is now open, and guidelines are also available for proposing special issues.

Please join me in celebrating this event, and please share the Call for Contributions generously.

With Warm Regards,

New Case Study: SAA, Teaching with Primary Sources

“Seeing Through Risk in the Special Collections Classroom: A Case for Flexibility” by Marc Brodsky, public services and reference archivist at Virginia Tech, describes a collaboration between special collections and a history class that emphasized engagement with primary sources. A class of 50 students participated in a transcription project involving 120 letters written by a local soldier serving in Europe during World War I that were addressed mostly to his wife in Blacksburg, VA. The project proved especially relevant given the centennial of the United States’ involvement in WWI. Read all about it here.
