    The Society of California Archivists is opening this Blog space to its members. Initially, the Communications and Outreach (C&O) Committee would like to post a blog from a Society-member guest blogger once a month. We’re open to a variety of topics, from announcements to tools & techniques.

    We are working with the Publications Committee to facilitate cross-publication content. Blogs should be short-form, 500-600 words. They may be followed up by longer pieces in the SCA Newsletter per Publications Committee approval. Likewise, Blog posts may be updates to pieces previously published in the newsletter. All posts will be shared via SCA social media.

    If you’re interested in blogging with SCA, please see the Guidelines for SCA Bloggers, where you will find details regarding topics, tone, copyright, how to submit your topic, and more.

    C&O is looking forward to working more closely with the SCA membership!

    Please direct questions and/or comments to outreach@calarchivists.org.

    The Heritage Emergency National Task Force (HENTF), a public-private partnership between FEMA and the Smithsonian Institution, is supporting response and recovery efforts of California’s arts & culture sector – and the public. 

    Cultural institutions and arts organizations affected by the flooding can call the National Heritage Responders hotline: 202.661.8068. The National Heritage Responders, a team of trained conservators and collections care professionals administered by the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation, are available 24/7 to provide advice and guidance.

    • HENTF’s Save Your Family Treasures guidance is available at https://www.fema.gov/assistance/save-family-treasures. Here you can find the downloadable FEMA fact sheets “After the Flood: Advice for Salvaging Damaged Family Treasures” and “Salvaging Water-Damaged Family Valuables and Heirlooms,” available in multiple languages.
