Hi, all--

A colleague from Mississippi and I are working to put together a panel for SSA 2018 that we think could be really fun. Here's our pitch:

Small Budgets: Big Ideas

Have you put together a great inexpensive project for your small archives? Create a pecha kucha talk (20 slides that automatically advance every 20 seconds) and share your project and lessons learned with your colleagues. Any kind of project from preservation to outreach to processing is welcome. It is sure to be a fast-paced and fun session.

If you're interested and want to talk more, get in touch.

Hi, all-- I'm looking for a little advice for a client. They need to buy a copy stand they can use when taking photos of large ledgers. Does anyone have one they'd recommend looking for? Or any helpful hints for picking the right one? They actually can spend money on something nice.

Thank you!
