      With apologies for cross-posting:


      All of the session descriptions for the Society of American Archivists 2002
      annual meeting in Birmingham, Alabama (August 19-24) are now available
      online at http://www.archivists.org/conference/birm2002prog.asp

      Here, you will find descriptions of such notable sessions as our "Archives
      Unplugged" track, which gives those new or returning to the archival field
      access to national experts in basic archival principles and practices. For
      example, on Thursday, August 22nd, Kathleen Roe of the New York State
      Archives will address issues of Arrangement and Description

      On that same day, a session addressing diversity issues, "Sustaining the
      Human Mosaic: Diversity Issues in Libraries and Archives," will discuss how
      these initiatives are developed and implemented, and how archives are used
      to foster and support these efforts:

      Friday, August 23rd features sessions on such topics as Creating Web Access
      to the Cultural Record
      http://www.archivists.org/conference/birm2002prog-Session.asp?event=26 and
      "Presidents, Governors and Mayors: Access to Public Records"
      http://www.archivists.org/conference/birm2002prog-Session.asp?event=40. Of
      course, you won't want to miss "I Read the News Today, Oh Boy: Documenting
      Controversy and Scandal at College and University Archives"

      And on Saturday, you will be able to explore "Mold, the Fuzzy Reality,"
      http://www.archivists.org/conference/birm2002prog-Session.asp?event=47 and
      "Different Voices from Birmingham: Records of Civil Rights"

      This is a small sample of the 60 sessions guaranteed to stimulate your
      thinking and leave you with many new ideas to use in your own shop once you
      are home from this marvelous gathering of archivists from the world over.

      More annual meeting information can be found at
      http://www.archivists.org/conference/index.asp#2002. Our program book is at
      the printers and will be distributed in late May or early June. We will
      also have our registration form online in the very near future.

      We're looking forward to welcoming you all to Birmingham!
