As many of you know, I am a student at the University of Washington, in the iSchool program. I am also the online representative to the student chapter of Society of American Archivists. I’ve had several conversations with some of you about your need for reliable student volunteers, and how to get them, where to find them etc.. I’ve contacted my fellow SAA-UW board members and we feel that posting to our list-serv which goes out to all interested students would be a great way to start. If you have any available opportunities or just want students to work on general projects you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see that the messages get forwarded to the right parties!
Thanks and have a great archives fair! I’m sorry I can’t be there but I will be in Washington D.C. for the first ever Smithsonian Institution American Archives Fair, so I can bring back suggestions for next year.
