LIS journals reading calendar

I created a Google calendar with assigned days for a large number of library and information science journals. The calendar reflects my professional interests as an archivist/records manager working in higher ed, but the calendar is helpful to a large number of users.

At the 2011 Society of American Archivists annual meeting in Chicago, I presented a graduate student poster on Tulane University’s Louisiana Research Collection’s (LaRC) legacy finding aid project, including our workflows for migrating almost 500 paper finding aids online in less than a year. I presented on the same subject at the Louisiana Archives and Manuscripts Association meeting in New Orleans a few months later.
