Hello, archivists! I'm Dana from ProjectARCC and stopping in with some
updates about our activities lately.

For archivists in the Boston and New England areas, we are hosting an event
with the Simmons College Student Chapter of the Society of American
Archivists (SCoSAA). The event is called *On the Brink: Archives, Climate
Change, and the Future*, and will be held at Simmons College in Boston,
Massachusetts on Wednesday, November 11 at 5:30pm in the Kotzen Meeting
Room. You can register to attend on our Eventbrite page:

Yesterday, Monday October 19th, was a big day. We published a blog post by
Rebecca Fraimow, a member of ProjectARCC's Protect committee. She wrote
about disaster planning, and how to get started NOW:

We also had another successful tweet-up, collaborating with ALA's Sustain
Roundtable, about ways archives and cultural institutions can reduce their
carbon footprint. Follow the conversation using #SustainLIS here:

Thank you for following ProjectARCC's news. Let us know if you'd like to
join us!


ABOUT PROJECT_ARCC:

********************

On Earth Day in 2015, a group of alarmed archivists founded
ProjectARCC.org, a task force with a mission to motivate the archival
community to affect climate change. We believe that as those responsible
for the preservation of history for future generations, we should be as
passionate and concerned about preserving a safe and habitable planet for
ours and future generations.
