Arizona Archives Summit, 2015

I had the great fortune to attend the Arizona Archives Summit, 2015 last week in Tempe at the Tempe History Museum.

As a new information professional in the state, it proved to be a tremendous opportunity to meet other archivists, librarians, and museum people in Arizona. I was reassured that the same problems are out here in the West as there are back East, just some of the subjects are different.

The wide ranges of topics kept the summit moving and required everyone to think about new interactions from session to session. While I'll admit to becoming disinterested at some of these types of conferences, I was engaged throughout. This may very well be due to the fact that I was learning more about Arizona's archives culture, but the speakers were by and large entertaining and informative.

I was glad to met professionals from around the state, but more importantly it proved to be an exciting event that I would look forward to attending again.
