Sign the Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable petition!

Total signature count: 88! Thanks so much to everyone who signed! SAA says we don’t need any more signatures.

Hi everyone,

I submitted the SNAP Roundtable Proposal (click to open the pdf) to SAA last night, and now we need your signatures! Here’s how to digitally sign the petition:

  1. Compose an email to (If you open this email link, it will do steps 2 and 3 for you!)
  2. In the subject, put: Signature in Support of Petition to form the Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable.
  3. In the body of the email, write “I support the petition to form the Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable.”
  4. Include your contact information in a signature block at the bottom of the email.

A couple of  rules:

You DO have to be a current SAA member (student members count!) to sign the petition.

You DO NOT have to be a prospective member of the new roundtable to sign the petition. If you support us, please sign!

When you email SAA, please also cc on the message–that way, we can keep track of how many signatures there are. (If you forget or don’t want to, that’s okay, your signature will still count.)

Please spread the word–we need 50 signatures! I’ll update this post over the next few days with our total signature count.

    Signed and sent. Also posted to my library school’s virtual student forum!

    Thank you all for your hours of hard (and largely thankless) work in putting this together. It is certainly appreciated by this scared-of-the-coming-job-hunt December ’11 MLIS graduate and current special collections paraprofessional!

  2. Sarah says:

    Signed and I forwarded the blog link to the University of Texas SAA Student chapter and 2 professors. Fingers crossed!
