The next meeting of the Miami Valley Archivists Roundtable (MVAR) will be on Thursday, May 19th, from 10 AM to noon. The MVAR is an informal gathering, and all archivists in the Miami Valley area are welcome. If you are interested in attending and need the rest of the info, please leave me a comment.
Hello! I'm an archivist in Dayton, Ohio. I write about history, archives, and/or library-related topics.
