In case you’ve missed the reference in the comments (or the discussions on listservs), some of our records management colleagues have come up with their own Records Manager’s 2.0 Manifesto. Naturally, they’re having some interesting conversations about it on their blogs as well, so that might be worth some of your precious blog-reading time. (And if you weren’t reading this blog last summer, you might want to go back and take a look at the discussion we had here when I posted “An Archivist’s 2.0 Manifesto“.)
You really should go and read Peter Hirtle’s post on the Library Law Blog, “Ancestry’s grants to archives: A good deal?“. He raises some issues you might want to consider before you go to the trouble of applying for one of these grants.
You probably missed it, but Max Evans posted a comment letting people know that he has posted the slides from his presentation on the SAA website. And I believe he’s not the only one. If there were sessions that you were interested in (maybe even some of the ones I wrote about it “Finding 2.0-Related Sessions at the SAA Annual Meeting!“), I encourage you to go to the SAA site for the meeting and check out what new information has been added.
If you’re actually reading this on the site, you’ll see that there’s a new poll question up, “Why are you an Archivist?” that collects information on the career track that led people to their current positions. Hope you’ll participate.
And, on the “fun stuff” front, you might enjoy taking a look at the Poladroid Project‘s site which allows you to upload a digital image and then convert it into a something resembling an old-school Polaroid. I haven’t tried it yet myself, but it looks like it could produce some cool results.
