The ARCHIVES*RECORDS 2019: TRANSFORMATIVE! Program Committee invited submissions of proposals for Pop-Up and Working Group Sessions at the Joint Annual Meeting in Austin. Pop-Up and Working Group Sessions will enliven the conference program by focusing on ideas and content that may have "popped up" between November 2018 (when initial proposals were due) and May 2019. We encouraged experimentation and ask proposers to think creatively to engage and challenge participants, prompting them to consider possibilities and new directions-even if it means jumping out of their comfort zones.
Session selection wered selected in two different ways. To ensure that under-discussed, salient, challenging topics/issues are included, the Program Committee co-chairs select two sessions that connect strongly with the conference theme. The remaining sessions were selected for inclusion in the program based on an online vote of CoSA and SAA members. Thank you to all who submitted proposals and all who voted - the votes have now been tallied!
