Two New Campus Case Studies Campus Case Studies are reports by university archivists on working solutions for born-digital records. Aprille McKay of the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan has contributed the latest cases: • Case 14: Partnering with IT to Identify a Commercial Tool for Capturing Archival E-mail of University Executives at the University of Michigan • Case 15: Will They Populate the Boxes? Piloting a Low-Tech Method for Capturing Executive E-mail and a Workflow for Preserving It at the University of Michigan Check out these FREE resources at http://www2.archivists.org/ publications/epubs/Campus-Case-Studies. Bring a DAS Course or Continuing Education Workshop to Your Neighborhood! Professional development is essential for career growth. If you can’t get out of town to attend an event, why not consider hosting one in your neighborhood? SAA makes it easy with an assortment of DAS courses and workshops—you can choose from sixty-plus available courses at http://www2.archivists.org/prof-education/ course-catalog. If you start planning now, you can host one this fall! By planning early, you’ll have enough time to publicize the offering for maximum exposure (leave at least three months to spread the word). For more information, contact SAA Education Director Solveig DeSutter at email@example.com.

AMTF Recommends Experimentation SAA will be emphasizing a culture of experimentation at upcoming annual meetings and is considering the needs of CoSA and NAGARA at the 2013 and 2014 conferences respectively, thanks to the input you provided to the Annual Meeting Task Force. We have started implementing suggestions already; at ARCHIVES 2013 in New Orleans this August, attendees can enjoy free Wi-Fi, a conference app with features that integrate with Google calendar, an extra track of sixty-minute sessions to free up more time for networking, and a new format for professional posters called a “Poster Pitch.” Read the AMTF report at http://www2.archivists.org/ sites/all/files/0513-V-B-AMTF-Final.pdf.
