Congratulations to Laura Uglean Jackson on her recent publication in the Winter 2010 American Archivist, “But You Promised: A Case Study of Deaccessioning at the American Heritage Center, University of Wyoming” [pdf], by Laura Uglean Jackson and D. Claudia Thompson. Laura is a former DCA casual employee who has gone on to do groundbreaking work in the area of reassessing collection material. This article ties in with information Laura presented at the 2008 SAA conference in San Francisco.
And the most bittersweet congratulations and best wishes to Anoop Kumar, head of the Tufts Digital Library development team through our partnership with UIT/AT, who will be moving on to the Broad Institute. We look forward to the day when it is announced that Anoop’s cutting-edge genetic research cures all disease (and probably invents flying puppies and magic sparkle ponies). Good luck, Anoop!
