Rainstorm over the Grand Canyon, taken on this date in 2015. We drove across Arizona and got to the park just before sunset, and made it to the Mather Overlook and watched the storm cross the canyon.

Each piece is slapped with a label on the lining which references a past season’s name and year that Jun is paying tribute to.

LIS 1090: Committee Meetings and the Never Ending Debates Over the Tiniest Details

It starts small but escalates quickly

And may be an ongoing argument from who knows when and about who knows what but is probably passive aggressive and, in the grand scheme of things, pointless.

Your best bet for survival is to nod, smile, and look for an opportunity to steer the conversation back to whatever the original topic of the meeting was

Quaere - Frolic & Detour: As many of you seemed to enjoy Murder Monday last week, with its content from the old UMN Law School Quaere student newspaper, we thought we’d give you more wit & creativity from 1978. This week we’ll be asking for, “Just the facts ma’am” as Madden and MacCormick work the night watch in the mean hallways of the Law School.

American Archives Month 2018: What made you want to work at an archives?

By Rebecca Grandahl | Intern, Office of Public and Media Communications 

“The mystic chords of memory, stretch… from every… living heart and hearthstone across this broad land,” said Abraham Lincoln, as he delivered his first Inaugural Address from the steps of the unfinished Capitol building.. It was an early, yet powerful statement that relayed the importance of the past to the American people. For American Archives Month in October, we celebrate the work of preserving that past.

Staff and volunteers at the National Archives across the country pride themselves on helping to make history come to life through the use of archival documents and materials. Unlike a library, archives preserve and care for primary sources, providing historians and the public access to firsthand accounts, data, evidence, and more. In an archives, items are saved and preserved to show how an event occurred, keep financial records, or to remember important personal moments.

“[Archives] are what write history textbooks,” says Amber Kraft, National Archives Education Specialist. “I love working with the raw stuff.”

Before working in Washington, DC, Kraft  was based in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were originally debated. Now, she has moved to the National Archives on Pennsylvania and Constitution Avenues, where the Declaration and Constitution are safely stored and sit on display in the famous Rotunda.

“It’s almost like they’re following me!” Kraft says of the two Charters of Freedom.

Dear Gus,

On this day nine years ago, Kaia and I were on a road trip in the Pacific Northwest. We watched the sunrise by ourselves on the beach. I was fascinated by the way the light and shadows hit that island on the right side of this photo. We walked over to it and Kaia swam in the tidepools, but I was too nervous to let her off the leash.
