Jottings – September 2014

The Danish American Archive and Library website has taken on a whole new, more colorful look. But it is more than just appearance. Significant changes to the way the site operates makes it more user-friendly and the information more accessible.

Jottings – May 2014

The Danish American Archive and Library began a journey in July of 2010 when we left the Dana College campus, eventually relocating at our current address on the main street of Blair. Since that time we have continued to grow, thrive, and strengthen and are now ready for the next major step in our journey.

Jottings – January 2014

As a new graduate student at UNO, I decided I wanted to take on an internship during my first semester. My advisor, Dr. Kristin Girten, placed me at the Danish American Archive and Library to give me a feel for the kind of archival work I will be expected to do if I pursue a PhD. I was excited to work there because my family has ties to Denmark. I never imagined all the exciting finds I would make while working on my first assignment!

For the Director’s Report I would like to describe a typical day in the Archive to you. As a matter of fact, I would love to describe a typical day, but if there is one thing we learned over the past year, it is “a typical day in the Archive is atypical.”

If you have time for only one book this year, then use that time to read Under the Cloud. This is the story of one woman’s life and the qualities of courage and commitment, intuition and faith, that make it uniquely her own.

What do we have in the Archive, and how can we make it more accessible? While last year was spent organizing our physical location, we want to spend this year working on internal operations and outreach.
