It's for a good cause
Recently, I heard that getting into a master’s program for archives is getting tougher. This is probably a good thing. I only say this because I know firsthand how hard it is to get into the archives profession. It’s excruciating. But having a community of archivists has kept me up-to-date on the latest chatter, encouraged me, given me advice on phone interviews, and done anything...

One more week to submit!
Hey everyone! There is only one more week to submit photos to the sexy archivist book project. I want to include a lot of people, so please, don’t be shy. If you have any questions I’d love to hear from you, too. I’m going to ask some people If I can post some sample photos soon. Alison
Deadline extended (as I expected) and other Info
I want people to be able to take pictures at the various conferences that are going on in the next few weeks. New due date is, well, how about we just say Halloween. October 31, 2011. I also want to let you know that the project is not excluding students OR records managers. I feel like if anyone related to our profession wants to participate, they should be able to. I’ve only recently...
More inspiration (for the gentleman archivists) →

Photo call for the sexy archivist photo book!!!!
The calendar is still the priority, but since we have had so much interest it would be a shame to not include as many people as possible. So I’m going to have an open photo call. Strangely, to print a small photo book is a little bit cheaper than a calendar, so the price will reflect that. I’m hoping this will satisfy those that took the survey and said they didn’t want to pay $20 for the...
We're in the planning stages.
We want this calendar to be awesome. Because of that, we’re doing some pretty extensive planning. Emily has some things in mind that she wants to try out and really get right before we ask for photos. We are going to ask for some group shots (to get more people in the pictures and to actually portray something) so get ready to gather your archival friends. We are also planning on making it a 2013...
Yesterday, Rebecca tweeted “Hey archivists, we can make our own sexy calendar, right?” My response: “damn right!” But she needed help. So, after some hesitation and lots of pre-planning (thanks to Rebecca and Jennifer S.) and agreeing to collaborate with Emily (known as watzanem on twitter), we decided to go for it. Hey, it’s for a good cause after all! Emily,...
