I'm pleased to announce that the second issue of Archive Journal, focused on undergraduates in the archives, is available online: www.archivejournal.net. What happens in the archival laboratory, a place where students are actively involved in research, stewardship, publication, and exhibits? The new issue addresses this question through case studies featuring students’ archive-based projects, a roundtable discussion about the practicalities and value of incorporating archival work into the undergraduate experience, and more. The case studies and discussions showcase students' involvement in creating digital archives and with using digital technologies in archives and special collections. All pieces are open for comment; we invite you to join the dialogue.
Archive Journal provides a forum for critical reflection on the academic community’s deep investments in the selection, description, preservation, digitization, and use of materials in special collections and archives. Read more about the journal here: http://www.archivejournal.net/home/about/.
We'd love your feedback -- on the issue, journal, site, author agreement, peer review policy, open review format.... I can be reached by email (Lauren Coats, editor -- archivex@ archivejournal.net) or through the contact page on the site.
