Kate Theimer’s post on tips for wannabe archivists

Kate Theimer’s new post on her blog ArchivesNext .  I can’t agree more with her assessment that technology is  a critical component of the archival profession today. Documents need to be scanned and cataloged online. Records such as emails are born digital and standards need to be created or updated to include these items.

That said the best part of the post in my opinion is the advice list from twitter. Some were very practical, but there were a few that I found funny.  Like this tip “You are going to be very, very cold all the time.”

There are two responses to this post that I found. One from Archives Hub the other is from New Archivist.
