1/ Happy Wednesday afternoon @OpenGLAM community! Today we're hoping to talk a little more about the L and the A in #GLAM: #Archives and #Libraries and some of their experiences with #OpenAccess re. Indigenous materials and belongings :)
2/ #Openness & #access are inseparable & access is a core value of librarianship & the archival profession. In both the American Library Association @ALALibrary Core Values & Int'l Federation of Library Associations & Institutions @IFLA Code of Ethics access is @ the forefront.
3/ The ALA’s Core Values of Librarianship state that "all information...should be readily, equally, & equitably accessible to all library users." Likewise IFLA pinpoints Access to Information as the core mission of librarians & other information workers.

Many thanks to @AAMers for a great conference this past week in New Orleans! The keynotes were 🔥, the sessions were stimulating, and the city is fantastic. *Thread* of my highlights below.👇🏼 #AAM2019
Opening remarks by @LottLaura set the tone of the conference, focusing on inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA). IDEA is not just abt mission, but the very survival of #museums depend on it. (1st pic via @AAMers) #AAM2019
Awards were given to those doing outstanding work across the sector. Museo De Arte De Puerto Rico (@MuseoMAPR) received an emotional standing ovation for their work to save and steward collections after #HurricaneMaria. Dir. Marta Mabel Pérez accepted the award. #AAM2019

1...#QCHistoryEngages On why I chose an MA in Library Science and History - My love of History was not sparked from a single visit to a museum, but rather continuous interactions with educational institutions.
2...My first memory of such a place was a visit to the @FloridaMuseum in Gainesville. The two exhibits I recall from the trip were displays on #bats and #dinosaurs, two things many 8 year olds enjoy. Still have the bat book from the trip.
3...My parents would always encourage visits to the #library as I had an interest for reading from a young age (not sure how they inspired that from the beginning - gladtheydid). This turned into an opportunity for me to discover new topics such as astronomy and other sciences.

I started my new class, #HIST199 (the History Workshop required for majors and minors) with Jim Gardner and Sarah Henry's 2002 article in TPH (@ncph), "September 11 & the Mourning After: Reflections on Collecting and Interpreting the History of Tragedy." It's such a great piece.
Gardner and Henry write so eloquently, about the role of the historian -- collecting, preserving, and interpreting; making choices; seeking out collaboration. jstor.org/stable/10.1525… @ncph #HIST199 #museums #publichistory
But they also are frank about what historians aren't--they can't see the future; they sometimes have trouble dealing w/emotion; they aren't making memorials. My students learned about context: what it meant that Gardner & Henry were writing within the first year after. #HIST199

I am not sure we will ever be able to process the loss of Brazil's #MuseuNacional. It's not only a loss of specimens, documents, artifacts; it's the loss of future discovery and knowledge, not only by scholars examining the collection but by visitors sating their curiosity. /1
Many people consider #museums "attics"--the @smithsonian, for example, is the US's "national attic." When a museum sells a "beloved" artifact there's always a hue and cry about it. Think, for example, of Eakins' "The Gross Clinic" and the recent case of the Berkshire Museum. /2
"Attic" assumes dust, neglect, nostalgia, even an amnesia to be restored through discovery. #museums /3
