Special Topical Issue: What Are We Going To Do With This Box of Photographs?
Call for Papers
The editorial board of J-SNCA invites members of the research and archival communities to submit articles for a themed issue, What Are We Going To Do With This Box of Photographs?, to be published in the Fall 2012.
Photographs are an archival challenge that commonly results in less than satisfactory archival outcomes: time-consuming item level description, confinement to a decontextualized series, or a lengthy stay in the backlog. This notice is a broad call for papers [shorter articles 1,500-4,000 words in length] that discuss archival solutions to the challenges presented by photographs. We would be particularly interested in articles that discuss how archivists can alter traditional practices, procedures, and competencies to become better stewards of the photographs in their collections.
Deadline: Deadline for article submission is August 1, 2012. Article proposals are welcome and encouraged. Submission guidelines at http://www.ncarchivists.org/publications/journal-of-the-society-of-north-carolina-archivists-j-snca/manuscript-submission-guidelines/
