2018 Joint Annual Meeting Call for Proposals
Proposals are due November 15!
American Archives Month is almost here
How will you celebrate in October?
We are proud to announce that SNAP’s Manual for Student Chapters is now available on the SNAP microsite and is ready for use!
The Student Chapter Manual is a collaborative document that pulls together policies from the SAA Handbook with commentary from real students in some of our many student chapters across the United States. It as a resource for understanding everything from chapter governance to planning chapter activities and hopefully will provide student leaders with the tools they need to succeed.

You may find it peculiar that a Research Services Librarian is writing a post in a blog dedicated to early career archivist. Well, that’s what I thought too, but from what I learned from travelling, living and learning from so many places such as our beautiful Island to all the way to the reaches of Vancouver, I came back with some advice, no more so than this: job titles don’t really say that much. Like many who have recently graduated from a first or second degree, I hoped to land the dream job, in my case, being an archivist and librarian in a special collection. The truth is, in my home Puerto Rico, you can count on your one hand the special collections that deal with archival material.
