This year the Issues & Advocacy Roundtable launched its blog series called Archivists on the Issues. We’ve already had some excellent posts and are and looking for more contributors.
Entries should discuss how a particular issue in the news affected or could potentially affect you as an archivist and/or your collections. We invite posts on topics such as education, parental leave, unions, donor relations, record retention policies, archivist culture, the public’s perceptions of archives, digitization challenges, or whatever issue you find yourself facing as an archivist (or aspiring one) today.
We ask that submissions are around 500 words. We encourage multiple entries on the same topic, as well as rebuttals, and hope to generate a rich conversation about the issues confronting our profession.
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also happy to receive ideas for posts and provide feedback.
