Monthly Brown Bag

Every month, Madison archivists and librarians meet informally to discuss one or two scholarly works chosen by someone in the group. It has proven a great opportunity to exchange ideas about topics that affect libraries and archives and to get to know others in the profession. Everyone is welcome! We would like to expand the circle and encourage students and individuals from other disciplines to join in the discussion. So if you know anyone who might be interested, tell them to come! The discussion takes place as a Brown Bag, so bring your lunch!

This month’s Brown Bag will take place on Thursday January 29th, from noon until 1 pm in the SLIS Commons.

Peter Gottlieb, Director of the Library-Archives Division at the Wisconsin Historical Society, will lead the discussion on:

Protocols for Native American Archival Materials

by the First Archivists Circle (a group of 18 archivists from across the U.S.)


“Pluralizing the Archival Paradigm: Can Archival Education in
Pacific Rim Communities Address the Challenge?”

By: Anne Gilliland, Sue McKemmish, Kelvin White, Yang Lu, and Andrew Lau
American Archivist (Vol. 71, no. 1, Spring/Summer, 2008), pp. 87-117
