WHAT IS THIS EVENT?

An informative and fun day, with a variety of workshops and attendee-driven conversations, covering all aspects of Teaching with Primary Sources. Join your colleagues and like-minded professionals, including educators at all levels, archivists and librarians from the Society of American Archivists (SAA) and Rare Books and Manuscripts Section of ACRL (RBMS), and across allied fields.  Hosted by the wonderful folks at Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History and organized by the SAA Reference, Access and Outreach Section’s Committee on Teaching with Primary Sources.

Open to individuals with all levels of experience who use primary source material in classroom and instruction settings. Tell your non-archivist teaching friends!
This is an à la carte, drop-in/drop-out event and you don’t need to come to the whole thing.  If you don’t know what SAA is and don’t have any idea what goes on at the annual conference, that doesn’t matter!  We want primary-source-educators from all walks of life to gather together to learn from each other about what works and what doesn’t.

For your archivists: Registration will be a separate process from the Society of American Archivists 2016 Conference registration — you can attend this event without attending the conference.  Lunch on your own with many nearby options.  Registration is first-come first-served.

If you work in a cultural heritage institution and oversee a digital newspaper project, please complete this survey.

This survey is being conducted by the Digital Public Library of America as a part of a planning process to determine what role, if any, the DPLA should play in providing access to digital newspaper content held by US institutions.  This survey aims to help us determine the landscape around newspaper digitization and born-digital newspaper collections in our cultural heritage institutions.  Please take this survey if you work in a cultural heritage institution (Library, Archive, Museum, etc.) and oversee a digital newspaper project.  If you don’t oversee a project, but know someone who does, please feel free to forward this survey to them.

We appreciate you taking your time to complete this survey and DPLA will share the results with the community once they are compiled.
If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to contact:
