Details: Since our meeting will take place during the UW’s Welcome Week, we have issued an open invitation to students through the campus branch of SAA to join us at the College Inn.  We hope that this will be an opportunity for our members to chat and for UW MLIS and Museology students to meet practicing archivists and benefit from your wisdom and experience.  (It may be a great way for you to meet prospective volunteers and interns, as well.)
