The Society of American Archivists created a page on their website which provides resources for archives amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes ideas for archival work from home projects and ideas for documenting the crisis. These resources can be found at 

The SCAA Board met today and, after careful consideration of the uncertainty surrounding future actions to combat Covid-19, decided to postpone the Spring Workshop until the fall. 

Whether the workshop is a standalone event, held in concert with the Annual Meeting, or as part of the Annual Meeting will be determined at a later date. I encourage anyone who has an opinion on which option they feel is the best to contact me at

We appreciate your consideration and look forward to any comments and suggestions you might have.
