Call for Submissions: Dispatches from a Distance, Returning & Reopening

Earlier this year, many of us were asked to work from home and distance ourselves from colleagues and friends due to the global spread of COVID-19. Some of us are still in this position of working remotely, some of us have returned to our places of work, and some of us are now somewhere in-between or mixing multiple modes of work.

As some small step in lessening the isolation between us, BloggERS! began publishing a series called “Dispatches from a Distance” to provide a forum for those of us facing disruption in our professional lives, whether that’s working from home or something else, to stay engaged with the community. Now that so many of us are returning to full- or part-time on-site work, we’d like to extend this series to include reflections on reopening, returning to work, and other anxieties facing the profession due to COVID-19. There is no specific topic or theme for submissions–rather, this is a space to share your thoughts on current projects or ideas you’d like to share with other readers of the Electronic Records Section blog.

Dispatches should be between 200-500 words and can be submitted here. Posts should adhere to the SAA code of ethics for archivists.

We look forward to hearing from all of you!

–The BloggERS! Editorial Subcommittee
