Archives Committee 2016 Annual Report

The 2015-2016 Archives Committee was Therese Clarke Arado and Annie Mentkowski (co-chairs) and Sharon Nelson.

During the course of the year members have continued to send CALL related documents, committee activities, and more to the archives for filing. Electronic copies of materials sent are being printed off for filing. The Committee is planning to purchase a one or two terabyte drive to house archives from the website. It has not yet been purchased as of June 9, 2016 but will be done this summer. Hard copies received will not be scanned for the time being due to limited equipment capabilities; however, items received electronically will be printed and stored electronically. Few materials have been sent to Archives this year, however a few members did send boxes of information for inclusion.

The Internet Committee provides CD back-ups of the CALL website at various intervals throughout the year. A regular schedule for this activity still needs to be developed.

The committee partnered with the Bulletin committee to get all the Bulletins archived in HeinOnline. The goal is for the project to be completed by January 2017, to coincide with CALL’s 70th anniversary.
