Now that the new year has begun, it's time to think about contributing to the SCAA blog. Please share your news--new acquisitions, new collections, exhibit, events, etc.--thoughts on meetings/educational offerings you've attended or on the latest developments in the archival field, or anything else that you think might interest our membership. Please send your submissions to me at email@example.com. Photographs or other illustrations to go along with your post are also gladly accepted. I look forward to hearing from you!
