We welcome you to Memoria, the blog of the Latin American and Caribbean Cultural Heritage Archives Roundtable. It is our goal to use this tool to share information and news related to Latin American and Caribbean archives. This blog will also provide articles written by colleagues engaged with Latin American and Caribbean collections in the United States. Furthermore, the blog will also include articles written by archivists in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This new blog is also part of important developments from LACCHA. On October 2013 an Ad Hoc Steering Committee was created with the task of revising the mission of LACCHA, the roundtable’s handbook and by-laws. The Committee will submit a report during the summer, which will be part of our discussion during next year’s business meeting at the SAA Annual Meeting.
We hope this blog becomes a tool not only for sharing information, but also to engage in rich conversations about Latin American and Caribbean archives and archivists.
All the best,
Joel A. Blanco-Rivera and Natalie Baur
