aam_cToday we celebrate Cool@Hoole’s one year anniversary since it relaunched under its new editor, Amy Chen, in time for Archives Month, as celebrated by the Society of American Archivists (SAA).

Since October 1, 2013, Cool@Hoole published 31 authors drawn from the students, faculty, staff, and community surrounding the Division of Special Collections across 80 posts, including one post every Monday. Posts were in one of five different subjects (listed in order of frequency): holdings, exhibitions, people, teaching, and services.

In the past year, Cool@Hoole particularly is proud of launching its first pedagogy series; remembering the founding mother of UA’s special collections, Joyce Lamont; interviewing the people who work, often behind the scenes, to ensure Alabama’s collections are preserved and made available to all; and showcasing the diverse assortment unique and rare materials that we hold.

Now it’s time to ask our audience what they’d like to see more of in the upcoming year. If you have a moment, please take our survey to let us know what you’d like us to accomplish by October 2015. Please click the link provided above (“our survey”) to access the questionnaire.
