I’m currently attending the Society of American Archivists annual meeting, here in sunny San Diego. It’s my first SAA meeting, and I feel like I could be at Museums and the Web or the Museum Computer Network conferences. Just take a look at some of the sessions:
Linking Data Across Libraries, Archives, and Museums (disclaimer: this is my own session)
Really, this isn’t surprising. Once you get past processing and into raw data, the challenges and opportunities are almost the same. Makes me wonder if I’ve been doing an archivist’s job all along. And it enforces my perception that the walls separating the disciplines are becoming thinner and thinner.
