The Ingalls Library receives an astounding 1,200 periodical titles, many of which feature articles about the museum and its collections, history, and activities as well as articles written by museum staff. This ongoing series gives you a glimpse into the varied and interesting topics that can be found in the serials collection.
Each year library and archives staff have the opportunity to attend professional conferences where we advance our learning, engage with colleagues from around the world, and in general recharge. I always return from these meetings invigorated with new ideas to apply to the museum archives. The Society of American Archivists (SAA) annual meeting is always a whirlwind of conference sessions, educational symposia, and visits to local libraries, museums, and archives.
