Recent and Upcoming Conferences

There have been two recent conferences in our area recently, and another is coming soon.  The annual Librarians’ Association of UNC (LAUNC-CH) conference took place Monday, March 10th at the Friday Center.  If you missed out on the conference, you can take a look at the live tweets here. Ann Cooper, one of UARMS’s graduate assistants,  presented on a project to preserve legacy born-digital media such as floppy and optical disks at the LAUNC-CH conference.

LAUNC-CH will also be holding a Research Forum on May 8th from 1-4 in Wilson Library.  The research forum will have a poster session along with sessions on instruction and outreach and on collections and access. Morgan Jones, a Carolina Academic Libraries Associate working in UARMS, will be presenting a poster on her research on collaborations within archives and special collections at the Forum.

The Society of North Carolina Archivists also just had its 2014 Annual Conference on April 8th in Raleigh.  This year’s theme was “Connect, Create, and Celebrate: Archives in the 21st Century.”  You can follow SNCA on Twitter at @NCArchivists.
