“Back to the Future” Day Two Wrap Up

The second (and final) day of the conference just finished up with tours of the Archives of Traditional Music and the IU Art Museum following a morning of great presentations.

Katherine Pruess, IU Bloomington, shared her interesting research on the history of Soviet archives, particularly the period of Destalinization, and Laura Buchholz, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaig, discussed the implications of communist-era secret police records in Hungary.

Sarah E. McAfoose, IUB, provided insights into promoting the Archives of Traditional Music on the IUB campus, and Patricia Vlastnik from the University of Alabama provided attendees with information and resources for utilizing special collections resources in K-12 classrooms.

Finally, JoAnna M. Roman, IUB, opened attendees’ eyes to the value of corporate archives, and Ashley Ahlbrand, IUB, introduced participants to the issues involved with legal records in archives.

With the conclusion of the fourth conference for graduate students and beginning professionals here at IUB, we’d like to thank our presenters for sharing their research, knowledge and experiences, and all those at IUB who offered tours and workshops at their repositories!

We hope to see you next year!
