Remote participation: can we do it?

We talked earlier about what this new roundtable could accomplish with an official meeting room and time at SAA. But we also know that attending SAA is out of reach for many new archivists, and that wireless access, at least for the next few years, may not be available. And my hope is that this group will be active throughout the year, not just at SAA. So, a few questions we need to answer:

  • How can archivists who can’t attend SAA participate in our RT meeting? Is providing a summary of the meeting after the fact good enough?
  • How will we communicate with each other throughout the year? (Not to bias anyone, but I’ll be sad if the only online activity we have going on is on a listserv.)
  • Any other issues related to remote participation?
