New Issue: Practical Technology for Archives

We are pleased to announce the publication of Issue no.6 of Practical Technology for Archives.

http://practicaltechnologyforarchives.org

In this issue we have three excellent articles, one on dealing with born-digital material on disposable media, one about incorporating a file-renaming program into a digitization workflow to make the files easier to repurpose, and another on a program for searching an institutions server to locate files that should either be deleted or archived.

If you have an idea or proposal for Issue no.7, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

All the Best,
Randall Miles,
Managing Editor

Call for Reviewers: Practical Technology in Archives

reposted from A&A listserv:

Practical Technology for Archives is a peer-reviewed journal concerning the hands-on aspects of archival work. We are looking for one or two new reviewers. Each reviewer for the journal is asked to review one or two article proposals and one or two article drafts. These reviews are done in a fairly tight timeframe, with only two weeks for each.

If you are interested, please let me know.

Thank you,
