Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Promoting transparency through self awareness, this session, patterned after a world café, allows attendees to explore whether they engage as individuals with our core values, how/if they see the values realized in their professional work and organizations, and why/if it is important to have shared professional values. Discussions are led by contributors to the forthcoming SAA monograph, Archival Values. (Limited to 11 tables of 10 participants.)
