This blog was created to support a “group read” of the book Archives Power by Randall C. Jimerson. Published by the Society of American Archivists, Archives Power is available for purchase here. If you’ve read the book or have relevant questions about archives and memory, accountability or social justice, please join the conversation.



1. Julie Carmen - December 18, 2009

My name is Julie Carmen and I serve as COSTAR Librarian at the Colorado School of Mines’ Arthur Lakes Library. I am a research librarian/archivist hired by a corporate entity to process and organize research information about oil shale for the library’s Tell Ertl Oil Shale Repository. This is my first year in this position and I have been able to host 2 exhibits and 1 open house for the repository, as well as give a poster presentation about the digital access and copyright issues I have seen working with this special collection. I would like to participate in this conversation as it may keep emails down, put the conservation in one place, as well as be an incentive to actually read the book. Great idea!
