Resources

As SLIS students and SAA-SC members, we are walking repositories of information. One student does an internship in LA at the Academy Film Archive, another in Washington D.C. at the Smithsonian. Several students receive a grant to travel to the SAA annual conference, someone joins a professional organization, a student goes to Rare Book School, someone found a site for job postings in the archival field, one of us stumbles upon a source for personal archiving tips or reads a wonderful blog by a fellow archivist.

We all have knowledge and as Information Professionals, we are inclined to share! Our resources page is a place to do that. We are working on compiling information for first years, former students and anyone who stumbles upon our site to share our collective knowledge. We hope it’s useful and if it is, that it continues to grow.
