Let’s start our blog with some sweet embedding skills and a touch of blasphemy ~ed.

Look Mom, we’re blogging Welcome to the first official post of the NewArchivist. We intend to structure this blog in a style similar to the great library blogs In the Library with the Lead Pipe and Library Garden. As such, this blog is a collaborative effort, with four Regular Contributors and, hopefully, several guest contributors and many more commentators and readers. The Regular Contributors are all recent archives and records management graduates of the School of Information at the University of Michigan. Our aim is to write on issues that interest us, from the perspective of archivists that are new to the profession (hence the New in NewArchivist). Feel free to read more about the Regular Contributors or our hopes for the NewArchivist.
Discuss What, Exactly? Everything! Well… maybe not everything, but we do want to discuss things that are important and interesting to us as professionals. We see each post taking one of two directions, either a post that is authored by a single Regular Contributor, or we get together and all “discuss” a topic in a longer essay. In both of these formats, please remember that each author is expressing their own opinion, as we are bound to disagree with each other on many things (but we hope that is where some of the fun will come in).
This is Where You Come In, Gentle Reader NewArchivist needs you to survive. Not only as readers but as commenters and guest contributors. So, please use the comment section and contact us if you have any ideas for a post, want to contribute, or want to tell us we are filled with awesome.
