Fall 2016 Ohio Archivist now online

The Fall 2016 Ohio Archivist is now available. Although it wasn’t the initial plan, this issue in many ways focuses on student archivists and new professionals. Feature articles by Madeleine Fix and Kelly Francis-Love discuss a student capstone project and an internship respectively. In Newcomers, Christine Schmid Engels “rethinks” the role of interns and volunteers. Also in this issue, Dan Noonan’s DiGITaL article sheds light on the ten year history of the SAA Research Forum. In addition, you’ll read about the goings-on of SOA members and member institutions, Ohio grant information, and as usual, a recap of our annual meeting and the announcement for the coming fall meeting. Check it out here or here!

The Miami Valley Archives Roundtable (MVAR) Archives Crawl is an event held during the month of October to celebrate National Archives Month. Crawlers tour host archives in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas gathering stamps in their passports. Participants will have the opportunity to view a variety of treasures preserved in area archival repositories, visit with archivists, and go on special behind-the scenes tours, depending on the specific repositories that you visit.

Please visit the Archives Month Events page for more information about the Archives Crawl as well as other events to be held in the local area.
