The Archivists' Toolkit Roundtable of the Society of American Archivists will hold its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, Aug 12th, 1-3pm, at the SAA Annual Conference in Austin, Texas.

Established in February 2009, the Archivists’ Toolkit Roundtable (ATRT) provides a forum for archivists from all types of repositories to identify and discuss key issues relevant to the Archivists' Toolkit (AT) software tool.

The inaugural meeting’s theme is centered on COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, and will set in motion the means to achieving the roundtable’s goals through input and activity from within the archival community. This will be an opportunity to share and benefit from the knowledge and expertise within the AT community that will enable us to expand upon and utilize the AT’s features and functions to its full potential.

SAA members and non-members may participate in the SAA Roundtables and Discussion Lists. Join the roundtable (SAA members as members; non-SAA members as participants), and you will automatically be added to the forum: http://archivists.org/saagroups/roundtables.asp ==> Archivists’ Toolkit Roundtable ==> Join/Leave
