Now that the preliminary program for the SAA Annual Meeting in DC has been posted online, many people are trying to figure out how they can afford to attend. If you live in the DC-area, you’re lucky. SAA comes to your doorstep on a regular basis. How about sharing some of your luck with your colleagues by offering to share your guest room or rumpus room sofa?
A while back the industrious Rebecca Goldman (of Derangement and Description fame) created a tool to help match people who have available space with archivists looking for places to stay. Now hosted by Lance Stuchell and the crew at the New Archivist blog, it’s called Crash Space for Archivists . If you live in a city that has an event coming up (like RBMS in Philadelphia or one of the SAA workshops), please consider filling out an “Add Form” to volunteer to host someone.
