Meeting Minutes – October 18, 2014

SAA Student Chapter, St. Catherine University

I. Community Partnership Project: Red Wing Pottery Museum

As part of our community partnership project, we will be touring the Red Wing Pottery Museum on October 26th. Members will depart from St. Kate’s at 11:30. The tour will provide background information about the company and its wares, which will help us when we process their archival collection.

II. Certified Archivists Panel

The group voted to hold another panel (similar to the one on digitization), focusing on certifications such as the C.A. (Certified Archivists) and C.D.A. (Certified Digital Archivist). The panel will explore the value of these certifications, especially for those who already hold an MLIS. The group voted to hold the panel next semester.

III. Holiday Party in December

The group voted to hold a holiday party during the December meeting. Start thinking of ideas! We will discuss details at the November meeting.
