Welcome to bloggERS!

This is the first post on the SAA Electronic Records Section blog!

We hope that you will find bloggERS! a helpful source of information on topics related to digital preservation, electronic records management, and other important issues for those working with born-digital and digitized content.

Keep an eye on this site in the coming weeks for a variety of different types of posts, including:

  • Topics for discussion and collaboration, to help archivists communicate and learn from each other and those outside the field.
  • Aggregations of news, information, and resources on electronic records issues
  • New content including case studies, interviews, surveys, reviews, and other writings of interest to archivists and electronic records professionals

And if you’d like to get involved, we’re looking for volunteers to join the bloggERS! editorial committee! This volunteer body is made up of members of the Electronic Records Section, the ERS steering committee, and the ERS Communications Liaison, and is responsible for managing the release of content on the bloggERS! site.

What if you’d rather be writing for bloggERS? Well, we’re looking for content contributors too! Check out the ERS Blog Guidelines for Writers for content and formatting recommendations, and feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions. We’d love to feature your case study, unpublished article, or feature on the bloggERS! site.

This is just the start of the conversation. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the site as it develops!
