CALL Archives Committee 2019-2020 Annual Report

The 2019-2020 CALL Archives Committee was comprised of Committee co-chairs Brittany Adams and Lucy Robbins, as well as Committee members, Patricia Scott, Jill Meyer and Matt Timko.  Joe Mitzenmacher served as board liaison.

The CALL archives were moved back to the city from Northern Illinois University to Loyola University Chicago.  The main effort this year was to get the new archives set up at Loyola and to make a plan to digitize the files.  The CALL board authorized the committee to purchase file cabinets to house the archives, but with the disruption of the year due to COVID-19, we were not yet able to do so.  During the 2020-2021 year, we plan to continue to set up the archives and begin the digitization process using the CALL hard drive and/or CALL Google account.
