SGA will represent at SAA



Join us on Friday, August 14, from 2:00-3:00 in the Exhibit Hall for the Society of Georgia Archivists' office hours. We will be promoting our Annual Meeting (November 4-6, 2009) and the newly-launched Forms Forum.

Join us again at 6:00 on Friday for the unofficial SGA Happy Hour at the Driskill Hotel Bar.

The Driskill was built in 1886 as a showplace for a cattle baron. Today it is one of the most elegant hotels in the State of Texas. In addition to it's convenient location (it's a short walk from the conference hotel at 117 E. 7th Street), it is next to one of the most important monuments in Austin: the Angelina Eberly statue, commemorating the Texas Archives War. To see the statue (which is on Congress Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets) and learn more about the Texas Archives War, check out this video. There's also a really good blog post about the Texas Archives War here.
