The LAAS Spring Open House event is an opportunity for LA as Subject members to interact with the public virtually. Although we all miss the in-person interaction of the Archives Bazaar exhibitor hall, the past year has demonstrated that virtual interactions can be great and create community with far-reaching audiences.
Similar to the Reference Chat activity that we held during Archives Bazaar, this event will be hosted through a single Zoom meeting with various breakout rooms. Participating LAAS member organizations will be grouped into panels of 4 per breakout room. Attendees can then join the breakout rooms with the organizations they wish to learn about and even visit multiple rooms throughout the event.
As an Open House, LAAS participants are encouraged to do short presentations as an introduction. Some ideas would be:
- Sharing a PowerPoint to introduce your organization and your collections
- Demonstrate your website or any online resources you may have available
- Share about any upcoming or previous projects
To sign up to participate, please fill out the form linked above. The deadline to sign up is Saturday, April 24th.
