BRIDGING THE GAPS

Registration opens this coming Monday for the New England Archivists' Fall 2016 Meeting, "Bridging the Gaps" on October 14th at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts. This half-day symposium is about exploring ways the archival profession can reach across divisions and work with stakeholders to expand access to collections and document underrepresented communities and issues.

-- Hear Yiddish Book Center founder and president Aaron Lansky speak about his ongoing work to rescue and make accessible the endangered literature of Yiddish-speaking people
-- Attend a panel discussion on promoting access across boundaries created by language, gender, and differing abilities
-- Finish up the day with a series of short presentations by NEA members.

Tours of the Yiddish Book Center and the Hampshire College Archives and Special Collections will be offered in the morning before the meeting begins. And this year, for the first time, NEA will offer a chartered bus to provide a greener and more affordable travel option from Boston to Amherst.

We hope to see you in Amherst!
