This year’s annual meeting is taking on a different format! We’re focusing on sharing ideas and building partnerships. A series of lightning rounds will give participants the opportunity to share experiences and highlight ways in which they have connected their archives with diverse user communities. Three concurrent “Bridge Building” roundtables will follow the lightning rounds. These open forums will offer participants the opportunity to engage with one another on specific archival concentrations and trends.
This year’s keynote speaker is Nic Butler, Ph.D. who will be discussing his role as the Public Historian at the Charleston County Public Library and surrounding community.

PALMCOP/SCAA Spring Workshop
Every collection is susceptible to damage from water – whether from floods, hurricanes, burst pipes, or from structural leaks. This presentation and hands-on workshop will give participants information regarding salvage of affected collections and experience in recovery of waterlogged materials.
Experienced collections conservator, Ann Frellsen, who assisted along the Gulf Coast after Hurricanes Ivan and Katrina and is a member of the American Institute for Conservation’s Collections Emergency Response Team (AIC-CERT), will lead the one-day workshop on how to recover collections after the water recedes.
Participants will gain hands-on experience in the salvage of typical library and archives materials. Participants will also learn the importance of teamwork in managing an emergency response, including safety, public relations, and the recovery of wet materials.
Workshop Location: James A. Rogers Library at Francis Marion University
Date: Thursday, May 28, 2015
Time: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
