Welcome to the Issues & Advocacy Roundtable’s new website! The Steering Committee decided to switch platforms to make our blog and Advocacy Toolkit more accessible. We will still be maintaining our official documentation (bylaws, meeting minutes, etc.) on our SAA hosted microsite. It is our hope that on this website we’ll be able to engage in the issues that are affecting archives and archivists and explore ways that we can use advocacy to address them.
We have a lot of exciting content planned. The first is an introduction to our steering committee. Taking a cue from the Women Archivists Roundtable and the Electronic Records Section, each of our steering committee members will be writing a blog post to tell you a bit more about themselves. The second is our series Archivists on the Issues. This series will be a forum for archivists to discuss some of the issues we are facing today. The third are Research Reports. The Research Reports are a pilot project we’re trying out this year to provide overviews of developing issues.
