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:
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.
