Welcome to the new Archival Elements blog! Although it seems almost retro to start a blog in 2022, we think this format will serve the section better than an annual newsletter. Archival Elements content is now available to a larger audience in a more timely way. Your articles, announcements, and other contributions can be published as they are received in a mobile-friendly format. This change also simplifies the workflow for the Archival Elements Committee, lending to its continuity.
Regardless of format, Archival Elements depends on your participation to exist. As with the newsletter form, we seek and encourage your announcements, brief submissions, and articles (both short and longer form). Your feedback and suggestions on how to make Archival Elements better are always welcome as well. You can contact us at email@example.com .
We will be reaching out to section members to participate in a couple of new, ongoing features for the blog. These are intended to help us get to know our fellow section members as well as the variety of institutions and holdings represented in STHC.
We look forward to hearing from you!
the Archival Elements Committee:
