    What is the value of archival labor, and what are its implications for diversity, inclusion, equity, and sustainability? How does invisible labor work against these central tenets of the field? How do we take meaningful action?

    The Archivists Round Table (ART) and the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) invite you to participate in a community round table on the landscape of archival labor in NewYork City. The intent of this informal discussion is to identify issues that are currently impacting our membership and to collectively brainstorm about how ART can support its members in effecting positive change. The responses shared during this round table, in concert with current work in the field, will shape ART’s forthcoming programming to promote visibility and dialogue around these shared concerns.

    The Archivists Round Table (ART) is pleased to announce a holiday celebration and benefit on Tuesday, December 11th in a beautiful gallery in Lower Manhattan. This year, we are delighted to invite our colleagues from the New York chapter of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NY) to join us and to announce that the proceeds from the event will be donated to Puerto Rican cultural heritage collections impacted by Hurricane Maria.

    For the past several months, ART has been collaborating with ARLIS/NY in organizing a project to support existing recovery efforts on the ground in Puerto Rico, and to aid local organizations in preparing for future disasters. This effort, undertaken in partnership with La Red de Archivos de Puerto Rico (ArchiRED), will include the creation of Spanish-language programming and instructional materials on preservation, disaster response and recovery, and grant writing that will be freely accessible to all organizations across the island. To further this endeavor ART is hosting an online fundraising campaign and donating the proceeds from the campaign and the holiday party to ArchiRED. 

    Come enjoy festive refreshments in a beautiful space with colleagues from ART and ARLIS/NY in support of cultural heritage in Puerto Rico, with speakers Caroline Gil and Coral Salomón, and photography on view by Cristobal Guerra. We hope to see you there!

    Irish County Societies Collection AIA.003

    Ireland's thirty-two counties have a long history of New York City-based fraternal, social, and benevolent associations. This project makes over 15,000 pages from the minute books of eight Irish county societies, spanning 1903-1996, available to scholars via links in the finding aid to the Irish Counties Societies Collection (AIA.003) in the Archives of Irish America. The digitization was made possible by a generous grant from Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs. The Archives of Irish America is a repository of research materials that assists students, faculty and visiting scholars in understanding the Irish migration experience and the distillation of American Irish ethnicity over time. It was established in 1997 as part of New York University’s Division of Libraries, with the support of Glucksman Ireland House, NYU's Center for Irish and Irish American Studies.

    Since 1979, the Archivists Round Table has supported the efforts of professionals and institutions to promote and preserve archives and records management in the New York Metropolitan area. Its archives are a document to that history and consist of a growing repository of correspondence, professional development, events, workshops, advocacy, and overall history of New York archives and individuals.

    Located in the archives at the New York Philharmonic, my exploration of ART’s archives began by creating an inventory of its materials starting with box 1, folder 1. As my time with the materials grew, so did my knowledge of its dynamic history and the many people that have contributed to its mission. ART’s archives are a testament to New York and its history, as well as the institutions that have preserved its communities and cultures.
