Archivists On the News!

Yesterday Fox DC News came to interview myself and 2 other colleagues to discuss the Archives Fair happening this Friday!  Check out the 3 interviews and make sure YOU meet us at the Fair this Friday!

Interview with Anne Van Camp, Director of the Smithsonian Institution Archives as she introduces Holly and you to the National Museum of American History Archives Center, describes the breadth and depth of our collections, and chats with Holly about the Archives Fair

Interview with Wendy Shay, Deputy Chair and Curator at the National Museum of American History, Archives Center.  Wendy discusses her specialty with Audio Visual materials and the complications that can arise.

Interview with (me) Rachael Cristine Woody, Freer|Sackler Archivist as I showcase the Charles Lang Freer papers and tell you what tricks of the trade you can look forward to this Friday!

Don't forget about our Facebook Q&A event hosted by the Smithsonian Institution's Facebook page.  Bring your burning preservation questions to the experts!  Some good examples are: "how can I preserve my great-grandmother's wedding photo?"  Or "how should I migrate my digital life?" Put our experts to the test TOMORROW (10/21)!
