Feedback form is now closed.
SAA’s Committee on Research, Data, and Assessment (CORDA) presents a free and open forum on the Committee’s work on research/assessment, data, and advocacy. Three 45-minute sessions interspersed with 15-minute breaks give participants flexibility to engage with the topics of greatest interest. Session 1 one focuses on the value and usefulness to archivists of collecting systematic data on the archives profession, archivists, and archival organizations. Session 2 is all about the potential of the new SAA Dataverse repository.  Session 3 highlights CORDA’s work to reimagine how facts and figures can support advocacy for the work and impact of archives. There will be ample time for online discussion and feedback. See the CORDA microsite for more information.
(Forum led by CORDA Co-chairs Paul Conway and Jennifer Gunter King)
