What is SNAP?
The Students and New Archives Professionals (SNAP) Section advocates for and addresses the needs of new archivists within the Society of American Archivists (SAA) and the greater archives profession. Read more about SNAP here.
Why a blog?
One of the goals of SNAP is to provide a forum for new archivists to share their concerns and learn from each other. We hope this blog can serve as that forum, working in conjunction with SNAP’s listserv and social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter).
