Welcome to the UnOfficial Wiki of the 2008 SAA Annual Meeting in San Francisco!
This Wiki is for learning about and discussing the 2008 Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) in San Francisco, CA, August 26-30. You're invited to exchange information about sessions, meetings, exhibit and trade show, other events, and the city of San Francisco.

Note from the Program Committee about the Wiki
On behalf of the SAA 2008 Program Committee, we’d like to express our gratitude and support for the development of this year’s UnOfficial Wiki and offer our encouragement to SAA meeting goers and others to share information and ideas about the program. This is a fabulous resource for anyone participating in or planning to attend the meeting (which we hope you all will!), but its usefulness will extend well beyond that, of course, as content develops. We thank the wiki creators, too, for pointing readers to the regularly-updated program information available through the SAA’s annual meeting site. The Web presence for this year’s conference – both official and "un" combined -- has taken some dramatic steps forward, and we are pleased to be among the beneficiaries of this "r/evolution." Hope to see you in San Francisco soon,
