**Please excuse cross-postings!**

Just a reminder, the deadline for the 2013 Description Expo hosted by the Description Section of SAA is approaching and we're looking for entries! 

As with past years, the 2013 Description Expo is a chance to collect and share examples of archival description, as well as tools, technologies, and techniques for search, discovery, and retrieval for presentation online. If you've found a new and/or resourceful way to share hidden (and not-so-hidden) collections, we want to hear about it! 

The SAA Description would like to encourage you to share your projects (and hopefully, foster some discussion and inspire others) by submitting them to the 2013 Description Expo. Entries for this year will be collected through July 31, 2013. Projects will be exhibited on the section website beginning in August 2013. You can see previous Expos on the Description Section website:

If you have a project, tool, or technology you would like to submit, please send a description (300 words or less), along with a link to Kira Dietz at [log in to unmask]. (And feel free to contact me with questions.)
