    Dear SAA Members:

    Join the co-chairs of  the Crisis, Disaster, and Tragedy Response Working Group of the Society of American Archivists, Kara McClurken and Vanessa St. Oegger-Menn, and Carol Summerfield, Executive Director of the Lake Forest Lake Bluff History Center, as they discuss the ethics, legalities, and complications of archival work in critical times. 

    Chris Cummings, Founder and CEO of Pass It Down, will host this fireside chat about how archivists are handling the challenges of collecting in response to contemporary events. Themes discussed will include: crowdsourcing collections, working with communities, the ethics of donating/collecting sensitive material, and trauma-informed care for archival staff and researchers.

    Hosted by Pass It Down and SAA
