Dear colleagues (please forgive cross-postings):

The winter edition of SAA's Description Section newsletter, "Descriptive Notes", is now available.

Please browse to After reading the welcome from our new section chair, you can read announcements about some recent finding aid and encoding projects, current cataloging and metadata issues pertinent to the archival description community, and a feature article about a fascinating collection at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (with parts at NLM, too).

Best regards,
