Sustainable Archives: Austin, TX
August 11-16, 2009
Date and Location of WCRT Meeting TBA
Hope to see you there!
SUSTAINABLE ARCHIVES / AUSTIN 2009 is an opportunity to explore the concept of
sufficiency across all aspects of archival practice, theory, and visioning.
Is there any one of us who is not trying to do it better, stretch resources over a
wider playing field, or grow a new idea by borrowing from a colleague’s seed bank
of experience? What have we learned from the short- and mid-range strategies that
enable us to reduce our processing backlog, maintain legacy archives, or acquire
electronic records that might otherwise be permanently lost? Is archival activity
simply more dynamic today than it ever has been, and what does that say about the
kinds of leaders and practitioners we need to hone our professional edge?
