National Association of Government Archivists and Records Administrators and the Council of State Archivists Annual Meeting -- Learn the challenges faces by archives and what they are doing in response!

Though most genealogists are not professional archivists, we do maintain our own archives and also have a great interest in any archives or repository where original records can be found.

An annual meeting held relevant to archivists is the “National Association of Government Archivists and Records Administrators and the Council of State Archivists Annual Meeting.” The most recent one was held in July of this year.  Just by reading the program, you learn a lot about the issues facing archivists, new technologies on the rise and so much more.

Some of the sessions have materials available online:

Additionally the NARA blog posted a follow-up talking about a session on the 1940 census (mentioned above) and the bottom of that post lists several resources you might want to check out regarding the soon-to-be-released 1940 census.

Editor’s Note: If you haven’t read yesterdays UpFront with NGS post, also on the 1940 census, do check it out.
