Responses to YOUR Comments #5


There are 6 comment boxes around the library and every week or two we go around and collect the comments. In the past, we’ve read them all and fulfilled those requests that we could but we never explained why we did or didn’t grant a request. So we have decided to openly reply to as many suggestions as we can, whether we can fulfill a particular request or not; that way, you know we’re listening!

So, keep the comments coming! In the meantime, here are comments and replies (so far) from this semester:

October is American Archives Month



American Archives Month at McKillop Library

Each October, the Society of American Archivists hosts American Archives Month to increase the visibility of and participation in archives across the country. If you’re interested in archives, or are just curious what an archivist does from day to day, this month is a great time to get involved.

#AskAnArchivist Day, Thursday, October 1
Ever wonder what a “lone arranger” is? How an archivist becomes an archivist? This Thursday, use the hashtag #AskAnArchivist on Twitter if you have questions about how archivists do things, favorite collections, or anything else about the profession. You can tweet @SalveArchives to keep things local or just use the hashtag if you want to read a range of responses. You can also start a conversation on the Salve Archives Facebook page.
