Unofficial SAA2007 Chicago Conference Wiki Now Online

wiki_green2_logo.gifIt is alive! Take a look at the fabulous new SAA2007 Unofficial Conference Wiki. The wiki exists due to the vision and dedicated effort of Cal Lee, Lori Eakin, Kate Theimer and others. You can read more about who contributed energy and resources to bring the wiki to life on the Acknowledgments page.

Are you willing to write about presentations? Direct your attention please to the Session Coverage page. As you plan your schedule for the conference, consider letting others know which panels and round tables you plan to cover. The ultimate goal would be to make sure that at least person has committed to coverage of every session. You don’t need to have a blog to cover a session – you can add your session recap as a page in the wiki. We will make sure it is easy to do when we get that far.

Are you presenting or running a roundtable? Then please consider adding to the basic information in the wiki about your session. You can add links, references, supporting documentation and background information — anything you think might be useful to those considering your session (or unable to attend because of conflicts).

Do you know Chicago? Help us add to the pages listed under the Logistics heading.

Need something to improve your conference experience? There are pages for ride sharing, looking for roommates, and special info for first time conference attendees.

Never contributed to a wiki before? There is a special page for you with tips and another waiting for you to post questions (and remember – the only stupid question is one you never ask).

So what are you waiting for? Cruise on over and take a tour, add what you can and spread the word.

    This is great! I’m on the steering committee of the Chicago Area Archivists, and I forwarded the message from the A & A listserv to the local CAA listserv.
    I’m hoping that the locals will contribute!
