As declared with some fan-fare a few months ago, the Start an Archives! blog relocated to the PADIYL site.
This was an effort to combine forces with the Philadelphia Alliance of DIY Libraries, and to create a more centralized locale for all-things-independent-collection-related.
Since then, however, PADIYL has decided to take a hiatus. The member organizations (nice folks one and all, be sure to visit their sites here, here and here) thought it prudent to focus on the immediate needs of building sustainable collections before moving on to umbrella organizations. No doubt a smart move.
I mention all this to say: We Back!
And we’ll be celebrating by posting interviews with independent collections near and far.
Stay tuned for that!
