DC 2006: Joint Annual Meeting of NAGARA, COSA, and SAA

Washington, D.C.
July 30-August 5, 2006
Hilton Washington



This poster session highlights the research activities of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission’s Electronic Records Research Fellows. Posters will be on display in the Exhibit Hall on Thursday, August 3, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, and on Friday, August 4, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Presenters will be assigned a time during unopposed Exhibit Hall hours to be present in order to discuss their posters with attendees.

Poster sessions at SAA annual meetings typically have included only graduate student posters. For the first time – at DC 2006, the Joint Annual Meeting of SAA, the Council of State Archivists, and the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators – the session will be expanded to include posters developed by the 2005 National Historical Publications and Records Commission Electronic Records Fellowship recipients.

The NHPRC Electronic Records Fellowships Program ( facilitates both basic and applied research regarding all aspects of electronic records, and particularly research that furthers institutional objectives and management of electronic records on a scale feasible for repositories at local, state, or regional levels. Through the development of research tools, funding, mentoring, and symposia, the program supports broad participation in the research process among archival practitioners and collaboration between archivists and academics.

On Thursday, August 3, and Friday, August 4, during Exhibit Hall hours, the following NHPRC fellows’ posters will be featured:

  • “Fortune 100 + Private 100 Electronic Records Management Study” – Carol E. B. Choksy, Adjunct Professor, Indiana University, and Consultant.
  • “Content Management Systems: Who Makes the Rules?” – David W. Mitchell and Jill A. Katte, Duke University.
  • “Determining Current Practices for College and University Electronic Records Management Programs” – Marcia Frank Peri, Archivist, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Lisl Zach, Assistant Professor, School of Information and Library Science, Louisiana State University.
  • “Developing the HIPAA-Aware EAD Finding Aid” – Catherine Arnott Smith, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Library and Information Studies, and Nancy McCall, Archivist and Research Associate in History of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins University.

Poster presenters will be available at assigned times to discuss their work with conference attendees. See the onsite program for the schedule.

The 2007 SAA Program Committee has included “poster presentations” as an option for those wishing to present at Chicago 2007. For more information about how you can participate, see the SAA web site at
