From the ICA Archives and Human Rights blog, for archivists of human rights collections:

Dear colleagues,
Hello, my name is T-Kay Sangwand and I’m the new Human Rights Archivist at the University of Texas Libraries. I am writing to see if any list members will be attending the Society of American Archivists annual meeting taking place in Austin, Texas, USA this August of 2009. I would like to organize a Human Rights archives/archivists gathering (probably a happy hour) during the meeting if there is enough interest. I think this would be a good opportunity to continue the discussion that began with the Human Rights Archives and Archivists listserv members at the 2008 SAA meeting in San Francisco and perhaps open the possibilities for future collaborations.

If you will be attending SAA and would be interested in such a meeting, please contact me at If you know of other colleagues that may be interested, please feel free to forward them this email as well. Thanks and I look forward to meeting you all soon.
