Yes, I’m at yet another conference and I’m feeling almost as blurry as the photo. This time around it’s the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. The crowds may be a tiny bit smaller than they have been at the last few SAA conferences, but that has translated into a welcome lack of violence around the buffet steam table. It also has made it easier to spot colleagues, including the UW Special Collections Division’s own John Bolcer and Nicolette Bromberg, as well as recent iSchool grad, Zola Mumford, who is giving one of the student poster presentations.
I may emerge from the cocoon of the air-conditioned hotel later this afternoon and try to see a bit more of Austin. As you might imagine, the heat has made it unappealing to go outdoors for an extended period of time while the sun is out, but I did make it over to the Harry Ransom Center, which you can read more about on my other blog, as well as the mother of all Whole Foods, and, of course, the bats.
The RAO meeting is about to begin, so more after I get back. See you guys soon in sunny Seattle!
