NEA and REPS (Roundtable for Early Professionals and Students) are excited to announce an opportunity this fall for NEA members to give back to the archival community.
On Saturday, September 13, 2014, volunteers will spend the day at the Brookline Historical Society (MA), Connecticut Historical Society (CT), or Norwich University (VT) assisting staff archivists with activities such as rehousing collections, arranging and describing historical materials, or transcribing correspondence. Details of each institution’s projects can be found on REPS website.
This is a chance to really reach out to our colleagues who need help creating access to collections.
All are welcome to join us, from new students to NEA professionals. To learn more about this event, see the attached press release. To get involved or learn more about the benefits of volunteering at this event, contact Casey Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org and watch for upcoming announcements.
