I realize that I’ve seriously neglected this blog — I have been writing, it just hasn’t been here.  Here are some of my past posts over at Hack Library School:

What I learned from the peer review process

Tips for your job or internship application

Questioning the Final Research Paper

Say what? Things I haven’t learned in library school

This summer and fall, I’ve decided to focus on research I’ve been meaning to do for a while.  I feel that very little literature on archival history exists, especially compared to the amount out there on library history, and I’d like to contribute what I can.  My plan is to research historical archivists of color — who they were, what work they did, what obstacles they faced, etc. — and I’ll need all the help I can get!  Once I have a better defined focus (e.g. time period, definition of archivist), I’ll definitely put a call out for names and all the resources I can find to learn about these individuals.  Please feel free to go ahead and give me any suggestions.

    I like your research idea. I can’t say I know of any archivists of color.
