Barnard archivists Shannon O'Neill and Martha Tenney, in collaboration with Rebecca Goldman of LaSalle University are coordinating NYC's first-ever archives unconference. It will take place at Barnard College on Saturday, September 6 from 10am-6pm. https://nycarchivesunconference.wordpress.com
Participation is free and comes with lunch!
From the unconference website:
"We are also hoping to make this unconference as accessible as possible, particularly for archives students and new professionals. It is open to anyone interested in archives and is completely free. We are also trying to facilitate travel to and accommodations in New York City for any out-of-towners, and all sessions will be held in ADA-accessible facilities. Moreover, to ensure that the Unconference is a supportive and comfortable space for all participants, the day will be governed by a code of conduct."
Faculty in all disciplines and women's centers staff are most welcome, too.
