The ICA-SUV Reading Group, which launched in June 2020, seeks to virtually bring together archivists and record managers from all over the world to discuss once a month a journal article or a news item about recordkeeping. It is intended to be an exchange of ideas, perspectives and opinions in a convivial setting.
Sessions are announced on the ICA-SUV listserv. Please get in touch with Venkat Srinivasan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ellen Engseth (email@example.com) if you have suggestions or would like to help by proposing articles or running a session.

- Wednesday 21 July at 2 pm CDT (find your time here: https://bit.ly/Jul21--localtime). Register for the Wednesday session HERE.
