In other news, the Archivists’ Round Table of Metropolitan New York (ART) in collaboration with the New School Archives and Special Collections is sponsoring a symposium, “Archives and Activism”, to bring together a diverse group of archivists, activists, students, and theorists with the aim of facilitating discussion of their respective concerns. The symposium will take place on Friday, October 12, 2012 during Archives Week. Please watch the ART website for more information on the symposium and plan to attend.
And we sadly note the loss of Michael Nash, Head of the Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives at New York University.
