Archives in art: Eduard von Grützner: Stadtarchiv in Hall in Tirol
Last night’s #ArchivesSleepover was a blast! (Even if we are making up for lost sleep today…). Plus pancakes this morning from author #BradMetzler and aotus, David Ferriero!
This was the scene this morning in the Rotunda at the National Archives as our guests woke up after a fun night of history at our first #ArchivesSleepover.
Kids and their parents enjoyed a special night playing games, writing with quill pens, meeting best-selling author #BradMeltzer, learning about the Constitution from #CokieRoberts, and talking with reenactors playing Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, and Phyllis Wheatley.
A big thank you to our visitors, special guests, National Archives staff, and staff from the Foundation for the National Archives for a great night!
Una noche en el archivo… Entretenida y divertida iniciativa de nuestros amigos americanos!
We asked Senior Paper Conservator, Kathy Ludwig, about the most interesting project she’s worked on. The most intrinsically valuable document she has treated at the National Archives is the Monroe Doctrine. The document is the Senate version the 36-page text of President James Monroe’s seventh annual Message to Congress on December 2, 1823. The Monroe Doctrine, hand-written by an administrative assistant and signed by the President, was a defining moment in American foreign policy. We’ll explore its conservation treatment in the next few posts.
Nueva entrada en mi blog: “Cómo hemos cambiado…” #archivos
Modelo del Ciclo Vital de la Preservación digital diseñado por la Biblioteca del Congreso de los Estados Unidos de América.
The LOC digital preservation blog has a post about digital preservation lifecycle models. This one we learned about in my digital preservation class, so it’s somewhat comprehensible. In the comments someone describes the CASPAR model as “brain-scrambling” and I certainly agree.
