Council Creates Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy The SAA Council has approved creation of a new Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy to “provide strategic information and advice to the SAA Council to enhance SAA’s capacity to address public policy issues and concerns affecting archivists, archives, the archival profession, and its stakeholders.” CAPP replaces the Government Affairs Working Group.

New Reads at the SAA Bookstore SAA recently debuted two new titles, Exhibits in Archives and Special Collections Libraries by Jessica Lacher-Feldman and Perspectives on Women’s Archives edited by Tanya Zanish-Belcher with Anke Voss. In Exhibits in Archives and Special Collections Libraries, longtime special collections exhibits curator Lacher-Feldman advises archivists at all levels on developing exhibits. The resource provides easy-to-follow advice on each step of the exhibit process, including formulating exhibit policies and procedures, crafting well-written labels, and promoting exhibits through conventional media, social media, and giveaway items. In Perspectives on Women’s Archives, eighteen essays written by noted archivists and historians illustrate the origins of a women-centered history, the urgent need to locate records that highlight the diverse experiences of women, and the effort to document women’s experiences.
