Indiana University’s student chapter of the Society of American Archivists would like to invite you to attend our second conference for students and beginning professionals, to be held on Saturday, March 6, 2010 at the Lilly Library and the Herman B. Wells Library in Bloomington, Indiana.
The majority of the conference will consist of presentations of papers and projects on topics related to archives, special collections, and rare books by students and professionals from a variety of institutions. It will also include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Lilly Library, Indiana University’s internationally renowned rare books and manuscripts library, and a workshop on digital preservation with Philip Bantin, the director of Indiana University’s Office of University Archives and Records Management and the author of Understanding Data and Information Systems for Recordkeeping. (This book won the 2009 Society of American Archivists Waldo Gifford Leland Award for writing of superior excellence and usefulness in the field of archival history, theory or practice.
