10th Annual SAA Research Forum: Foundations and Innovations
Participants’ enthusiastic response to the past nine Research Forums confirms that the full spectrum of research activities—from “pure” research to applied research to innovative practice—is of interest and value to the archives community. If you’re engaged in research… seeking to identify research-based solutions for your institution… willing to participate in the research cycle by serving as a beta site for research trials… or simply interested in research and innovation… then join us for the 10th Anniversary of the SAA Research Forum! Free to conference registrants; $50 / $25 (students) for those not registered for the conference. Badge required for admission.
