2018 Annual Meeting of the Society of Georgia Archivists

Practical Pathways: Applied Tools and Creative Approaches

October 24–26, 2018

The Graduate Athens Hotel, Athens, GA

Members of the archival profession reflect diverse professional backgrounds and experiences that inform heuristic solutions to on-the-job problems. By examining innovative ideas and practical answers, presentations at this year’s meeting will highlight the different avenues available for reaching the goals of archivists and their institutions.

The Society of Georgia Archivists identifies inclusion as its commitment to ongoing and cumulative efforts—including policies, principles, practices, recruitment, and activities—that engage an increasingly diverse community in a welcoming, equitable, and responsive manner. Practical Pathways: Applied Tools and Creative Approaches invites inclusive and diverse approaches for transforming the archival profession’s practice, theory, and attitude.
