Call for Member Comment:  First Draft of the Best Practices for Volunteers in Archives

Volunteers may play an important role in ensuring the survival of and access to our nation’s heritage and the diversity of our historical record.  But in some instances, volunteers – including graduate students and new archives professionals – may be misused.  The SAA Council has drafted a “Best Practices” document with guidelines for appropriate volunteer arrangements and is seeking member comment on the draft.

Send comments on this first draft to to saahq@archivists.org by April 21, 2014.

After revisions are completed, the next draft will be posted to SAA’s website for wider comment. After all comments are received, the document will be revised and shared with the Standards Committee before final review at the August 11 Council meeting.
