There is only one week left until the New England Archivist's Fall 2016 Meeting at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts and there is still time to register. This year's meeting, "Bridging the Gaps" will explore ways the archival profession can reach across divisions and work with stakeholders to expand access to collections and document underrepresented communities and issues. We are excited to welcome plenary speaker, Aaron Lansky who will talk on Treasure for the Finding: The Ongoing Adventures of the Yiddish Book Center.
How are you getting to Amherst for the NEA Fall 2016 Meeting? If you need a ride or have extra room in your car in exchange for fine company (and/or gas money) -- We've created an online, self-service carpooling sign-up sheet where you can connect with other members looking to share a ride. Just enter your name and contact info, when and from where you're traveling, and whether you're a driver (with a car) or a rider. Then, wait to be contacted by other carpoolers, or go ahead and contact others who list pick-up locations and dates in line with your travel plans. **Please note that members are entirely responsible for making their own arrangements, including meeting times, sharing the cost of gas, etc., and for following through with their plans.**
The parking lot nearest to the Yiddish Book Center is limited by construction on the Hampshire College campus. NEA Fall 2016 Meeting attendees are being asked to park in the lot across from the Eric Carle Museum.
