New Issue: Archivaria

Dear Archival Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Archivaria 89 (Spring 2020) is now available online at https://archivaria.ca/. It will also be available on Project Muse within the coming days. The print issue is in production and will be mailed to members and subscribers in the next few weeks. Canada Post is reporting delays to their service and this may affect when members receive their printed copies.

All Archivaria content is currently available to everyone without any restrictions. After June 30, 2020, we will be implementing a new embargo policy, by which access to articles included in the most recent two issues (instead of the last eight issues) is going to be restricted to members and subscribers.

With this issue, you’ll also notice things have changed a bit on our website. In recent weeks, we upgraded the journal to a more responsive, mobile-friendly version of Open Journal Systems (OJS).

A huge thank you to the authors who have contributed to the new issue, to the Archivaria Editorial Team, and to the ACA office staff for all the hard work it takes to put an issue together.

Happy reading!

Fiorella Foscarini, General Editor

New Case Study: Engaging History of Science Students with Primary Sources

Despite a significant portion of non-English science and technology texts, Leigh Rupinski, archivist in Special Collections and University Archives at Grand Valley State University Libraries, devises an interactive lesson plan to engage history of science students visiting the archives. Read all about it in “Bingo! Engaging History of Science Students with Primary Sources,” which is the thirteenth case in the open access series Case Studies on Teaching With Primary Sources sponsored by SAA’s Reference, Access, and Outreach Section.

New Issue: American Archivist

Fall/Winter 2019 Issue Online Now,
Print Edition To Be Mailed Later

The Fall/Winter 2019 issue is available open access online. Read about the historical hazards of finding aids, virtual reality experiences in the archives, reassessing audiovisual archives, and more! Note: Due to shelter-in-place orders across the country, our printer/distributor has recommended delaying the mailing of the print edition as the majority of copies are sent to members’ workplaces and institutions. Expect your Fall/Winter 2019 and Spring/Summer 2020 issues to arrive together in early summer. Until then, read all content online at AmericanArchivist.org—and let your colleagues and friends know that the most recent journal content is temporarily fully accessible through June 30!

New Case Study: Teaching Students Research Methods with Primary Source Analysis

New Case Study: Teaching Students Research Methods with Primary Source Analysis

Archivists and history faculty collaborate to teach students about primary source research in “Scaffolding Primary Source Research and Analysis in an Undergraduate History Research Methods Course” by Kara Flynn, research and educational services archivist at the University of Arkansas. It is the twelfth case in the open access series Case Studies on Teaching With Primary Sources sponsored by SAA’s Reference, Access, and Outreach Section.

New Issue: Comma

The next issue of Comma (2018:1-2) is a bumper special issue focusing on the work and impact of  archivists and archives  in university and research institutes
(subscription, membership)

The seventeen articles (twelve in English and five in Spanish) originate from the 2018 ICA-SUV/Conferencia de Archiveros de las Universidades Españolas [Conference of Spanish University Archivists] conference,  “What value do historical records in University Archives add to Universities?” They are arranged here under four main themes :   the Identity of university archives, the Pace of  archives in the university community, the Management of archival records, and the Dissemination of the university archival heritage .

The special issue editors,  Miguel Ángel Jaramillo Guerreira and Caroline Brown, identify ideas about   “identity” as  the  common thread which runs  throughout  the issue. How archivists conceive their own identity, and that of the archives themselves,  is evident in articles which discuss  the changing roles of archive services   within the  institutions and their wider communities, or the roles which archivists themselves play, notably that of the archivist-activist.
