HAB Call for Repository Participation

Good morning, AHA!
We’re two months away from the Houston Archives Bazaar, happening Sunday, September 10, 2017 from 2-6pm at White Oak Music Hall.
Archival repositories are encouraged to participate in various ways – we’re offering repositories a table in the main hall to promote their collections and engage visitors in a hands-on archival experience. Repositories are also welcome to jump onstage to wow the crowd with their repository’s “elevator pitch.” Even repositories who are not able to attend the event are encouraged to provide informational materials for the visitor’s HAB goodie bags.
A number of repositories have already committed, but we want to ensure the widest possible participation for the Bazaar. Even if we haven’t seen or heard from you in a while, we’d love to have your organization represented at the event! Know of someone else we should invite? We’d love to hear that, too. And if you aren’t sure whether your repository has already committed, feel free to check with Matt Richardson [rmrichardson@uh.edu]] or Emily Vinson [evinson@uh.edu].
If your repository would like to participate in the event, please fill out the Google Form below. Once we receive your submission we will be in touch with additional information. [Note: the description you provide of your archive will be used for promotion in social media and elsewhere.]
Also, if you represent a non-repository organization, your involvement is welcome, too. Go ahead and fill out the form, and we’ll follow up to discuss whether a table, and/or some other form of participation is the best fit.
If you have questions about how your organization can best participate in this archival community-building event, please feel free to get in touch with Matt Richardson [rmrichardson@uh.edu] or Emily Vinson [evinson@uh.edu].We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
Best,
Matt Richardson,
Chair, HAB Programming Committee
