The NEA board is pleased to announce the appointment of William Ross (Professor and Head of the Milne Special Collections and Archives Department at the University of New Hampshire), James Roth (Deputy Director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library), and Sarah Shoemaker (Director, University Archives & Special Collections, Brandeis University) as Editors-at-Large for the Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies. A collaboration between New England Archivists and the Yale University Library, the journal's aim is to further awareness of issues and developments in the work of professional archivists, curators, and historians, and serve as a locus for graduate students and professionals in library science, archival science, and public history to contribute original works of research and inquiry for peer-review and publication. For more information about this project, please see the Draft Plan.
