The panelists spark a conversation about the technological and archival skills needed to meet digital-age users’ reference expectations. Come hear how colleagues take aim and tackle the age of search engines.

College Archivist, Davidson College
Much of my career has been as a lone-arranger and as an archivist who regularly crosses borders and play well with librarians. working on a college campus, I look for ways to get students, faculty and staff engaged with the archives. | Talk to me about instruction, working with college staff (alumni relations, athletics, and more), belly dancing, and community outreach.

Russell Gasero

Archivist, Reformed Church in America Archives
As a religious archivist I am most interested in the philosophy and theology of archives on the theoretical level. On a practical level, I have been doing MPLP for a very long time and am interested in how lone arrangers get all the tasks accomplished in an efficient and effective manner. My passion is being of help and service to others as we grow and develop in our profession. I have now been at this craft for more than four decades!
