52 Weeks to Better Genealogy : Week 12 Challenge : Archives & Libraries

Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog (and hosted by GeneaBloggers) presents "52 Weeks To Better Genealogy", a series of weekly genealogy prompts / suggestions / exercises that (hopefully) will help anyone to become a better researcher.

The challenge for week 12:

LAC, Ottawa
Check out the web sites for the Society of American Archivists, ARMA International, and the American Library Association. Genealogists can benefit from the educational opportunities and publications of other information-based organizations. You may not be an archivist, records manager or librarian, but you share the same interests. Look at the events these associations hold. Find the books they publish and see if you can request them through your library via Inter-Library Loan. You may also want to check out your state’s (or country’s) library association. If you’re a genealogy blogger, write about your impressions of one or more of these organizations.

I'll post my results later this week...

Please Note: This challenge was originally published the week of 20 March 2010. I'm continuing the series on my own after a lengthy (cough, cough) break from genealogy...
