Plenary Speaker: Ben Garcia – “Archives, Libraries, Museums: Meaning-making and Magic.”
Garcia is deputy executive director and chief learning officer at the Ohio History Connection. His talk will be a reflection on why our work matters, where we have gone astray, and what the path forward could be. This presentation will touch on the meaning of collections and spaces, digital and physical. And a rationale, rooted in our deepest places, for equitable practice, access and representation in our fields.

SOA Virtual Meet-Up – Thursday, June 18, 3pm via Zoom

Earlier this year, the Society of Ohio Archivists Advocacy & Outreach Committee discussed setting up informal meet-ups around the state to allow archival colleagues to get together informally. COVID-19 disrupted those in-person plans for 2020, but we wanted to try a virtual option on Thursday, June 18 (the day following SOA’s virtual two-day Annual Meeting June 16-17).

Register here to join the meet-up! (Registration will be open right up to meeting time.)

We hope this virtual get together will provide attendees a chance to “see” each other and chat, commiserate, and share, however briefly. So join us to say hello and share a bit about the strangeness of these past few months, and plans for moving forward in our institutions. All are welcome!

Thank you, SOA Advocacy and Outreach Committee
