#WOWSAA with Dennis Meissner

Posted on Updated on


We were lucky enough to host Society of American Archivists President Dennis Meissner on Wednesday, February 10th. We would like to thank the Project Archivists of the Bentley Historical Library for letting us speak with Meissner as a part of our #WOWSAA series. SAA gathered our tweets into a Storify that can be found here.
