New "Archivists Being Awesome" Group hosts Inaugural Meeting at W. W. Hagerty Library

On Thursday, May 17th, Drexel University Libraries hosted the inaugural meeting of Archivist Being Awesome (ABA), a Philadelphia-based information setting for archivists to talk about their projects happenings of interest and ideas. ABA was founded by Drexel iSchool alumni Laurie Rizzo and Scott Ziegler and around 20 people attended the first meeting held at W. W. Hagerty Library, where they listened to three archivists present on current work and interests.

Presentations at the inaugural event included: iSchool alumna Megan Good, Independence Seaport Museum, who spoke about smartphone applications that make archival work easier, Richard Shrake, American Philosophical Society, who discussed his library’s migration of digital collections to Islandora, and Scott Ziegler who spoke about the efforts of the Radical Archives of Philadelphia to preserve the history of local progressive organization and individuals. The event was also hosted online for those unable to attend in person.

The founders of ABA created the group to provide more opportunities for archivists to share ideas than is provided by the current local group, Delaware Valley Archivist Group (DVAG), which only meets quarterly. For more information about ABA or for information about future events, visit the Archivists Being Awesome website.
