Welcome

Alaska has a lot of challenges for archival collaboration.

We hope we can change that. If you’re an Alaskan working with archival materials as a small part or a big part of your job and are interested in finding out more about your archival colleagues in the state, sharing your needs, sharing your solutions, discussing advocacy efforts, and finding opportunities for continuing education, we hope you will join us.

What we want to do between September 2018 and August 2019:

  • Monthly web-based meetings: discussions on a variety of topics! We’ll be using Zoom to have once-a-month live online meetings (as meetings are scheduled they’ll be linked from the Meeting Schedule menu link above).
  • Use this website as a place to gather and share information about what organizations have archival materials, what our needs are in dealing with it, and share expertise and knowledge.

The subscription costs for this website and for Zoom have been funded for 9/2018-8/2019 by the Continuing Education Fund of Northwest Archivists Inc., the regional archival professional association for Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington
