On October 1, 2017, the Utah Division of Archives and Records Service combined our two blogs into a single, new blog: archivesnews.utah.gov.
The Utah State Archives serves a diverse audience, yet we are a single institution. Our new blog is an effort to provide a single voice at a single location for all of our audiences. From preserving and providing access to historical records, to administering the USHRAB (Utah State Historical Advisory Board); from registering for training or finding guidance regarding records management and GRAMA issues, to staying informed about Public Notice Website and Open Records Portal requirements; we are working to ensure that all audiences can easily find the information that they need.
WIth that in mind, we will no longer be posting at this web address. All new content will now be posted at archivesnews.utah.gov. Our older posts on the Records Keepers blog will remain available at this web address while our support team works to seamlessly transition them to the new website.
Our new blog will have a number of regular posts to highlight the different responsibilities of the Archives. Our records analysis and open government teams will continue to post about records management best practices, GRAMA issues, available training classes, and to spotlight our Records Officers (We LOVE our AROs!!). Our processing team (including the Digital Archives) will continue to post on interesting records, new finding aids and research guides, and archival best practices. We will be adding posts on re-grant projects for the USHRAB, as well as quarterly reports from our reformatting team, our records center, and a variety of transparency issues.
Finally, our new blog has a number of subscription options that allows you to follow the information that pertains to your interests. Our current subscribers were moved already with instructions on updating their new profiles. Find more information on subscriptions at archivesnews.utah.gov/subscribe/.
We hope to see all of you over at archivesnews.utah.gov!
