News for May 30, 2014

The end of May is upon us! Be aware SFA is in the process of migrating to a new website. The address will be the same, florida-archivists.org, but it’s got a whole new look! Please bear with us as we work on getting all the pieces of the site up and running! Keep an eye out here for updates and announcements about the new website.

From the Country:

Bronxville, NY: Barbara Walters announced her archives were being donated to Sarah Lawrence College.

New York, NY: We lost one of the great voices of literature this week, Maya Angelou. An archive in NYC shares a treasure trove of Angelou archives the author donated in 2010.

From the World:

Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom: After worry the archive had been lost in a devastating fire at the famed Glasgow School of Art, looks like it was saved!

London, England, United Kingdom: A fascinating collection of World War II film has been digitized and shared via the British Council.

From the Blogosphere:

Digitization 101 is a great blog for things beyond digitization. Copyright is another favorite topic. Check out this information on ALA’s work on interpreting copyright.

It’s that time of year again! ArchivesNext is hosting the annual Spontaneous Scholarships – give if you can to help students and young professionals attend SAA’s annual conference!
