Phoenix, Arizona: ARMA---Association of Records Management Administrators (Allied to the Society of American Archivists).More infoThe title is “Archives: History or Hoarding?” The discussion should center on the similarities, differences, and synergies between records management and archives, concluding with how a records and information management program should flow seamlessly into an archives program (with many corporations and institutions combining the functions into one). But there is a distinctly different mindset, as [chapter vice-president] Mark [McFarlane] pointed out: “Records management is a search and destroy mission. Archives is a search and rescue mission,” with two very distinct constituencies: RIM answers the day-to-day business needs, while Archives attempts to assess what has future historical value. So, how can the two work in harmony, and how does one start an archives program from scratch, or from a basement full of old file boxes from the 1940’s?

Hussman, Librarian, MA, MLISCurator of the History of Science Collections University of Arizona Health Science ArchivesUniversity of ArizonaUniversity LibrariesSpecial Collections Department________________________________________TITLEThe Beneficent Godfather: Dr. Augusto Ortiz and the Creation of Arizona's Mobile Rural Health Medicine Program.ABSTRACTDr. Augusto Ortiz lived and worked in Arizona most of his professional life from 1953 until his death in 2006. Throughout his career as a family practitioner and educator he worked to bring health care to the poor and underserved. In his earlier years he worked in private practice in the Phoenix area primarily serving a needy Hispanic population. In 1972 Dr. Ortiz moved to Tucson and established a mobile health program based out of the University of Arizona’s Rural Health Office which provided health care to many rural and underserved areas in southeastern Arizona. Areas of particular interest to him included community oriented primary care, migrant laborer health care, health education and folk medicine including herbal folk remedies and curanderismo. Shortly before he passed away in 2006, he was awarded a medal by the Surgeon General of the United States for his dedication to providing rural health to the needy and poor of Arizona. My paper will discuss his (50 year) career and dedication to creating equity and equality in providing health care to the Hispanic community in and around the U.S./Mexico Border. Dr. Ortiz also lobbied in Congress on behalf of rural workers in order eliminate the use of pesticides and other agricultural labor practices that caused harm to many of his rural patients. His creation of the mobile rural health care program became a model for many other states, and has evolved into a nationally recognized program.The PRESENTATION TYPERegular Paper presentationLEARNING OBJECTIVES: SEE WEBSITE FOR ASSISTANCE IN DRAFTING OBJECTIVES: HTTPS://WWW.HISTMED.ORG/LEARNING-OBJECTIVES#1 Develop knowledge and understanding of professional behaviors and values -Identifying the success and failures in the history of medical professionalism#2 Continue the improvement of patient care-Develop an historically informed sensitivity to the diversity of patients (including appreciation of class, gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, cultural, and spiritual orientations)

- Hussman, S. J. (2014, April 12). History of North Kittitas County/Suncadia Digital Legacy Project. Brooks Library Annual Gala. Dr. James E. Brooks Library, Central Washington University.More infoSuncadia Legacy Collection In 1996, following his retirement from the Cle Elum-Roslyn School District, Frederick E. Krueger worked on behalf of Trend West Resort to collect and preserve the cultural and mining history of Kittitas County, Washington. With Krueger’s assistance, Trend West Resort had intended to construct an interpretive center with historical information for guests. However, the project was not fully realized until 2003, when Suncadia Resort, LLC (descendent of Trend West), began constructing its Inn at Suncadia and revisited Frederick Krueger’s invaluable primary resource material that included: interviews with local coal miners (particularly those who worked in and around the Northwestern Improvement Company (NWI) #9 Mine, which is now the site of Suncadia Resort), as well as family members and persons who shared their personal life stories and experiences.The materials gathered by Krueger now comprise Suncadia Legacy, a collection divided into two series: Roslyn, Cle Elum, and Ronald Oral Histories, which consists of full-length audio and video interviews; and Suncadia Photographs, which document the visual history of the #9 Mine and locale of Roslyn, Cle Elum, and Ronald. While the majority of Suncadia Legacy’s audio and video interviews were conducted 1995-2003, some audio interviews date as early as 1972, and others—added by several of Krueger’s students through class oral history and family history projects at the Cle Elum-Roslyn High School—date to the 1980s and 1990s.Due to increased preservation and access concerns, Paul Eisenberg and his staff at Suncadia Resort consulted with Frederick Krueger and the Dr. James E. Brooks Library, Archives and Special Collections Department, in the fall of 2013 to arrange for the transfer of Suncadia Legacy materials to an appropriate repository and for suitable media reformatting. The materials at this stage were neither accessible, nor formatted for wide-spread use. George Blood, L.P., Audio/Video/Film Preservation, provided much needed assistance in transferring and reformatting the video collections, as well as counsel regarding metadata best practices. Suncadia Resort generously provided funding for digitization while the Suncadia Fund for Community Enhancement provided support for the ScholarWorks platform, where these materials have been made accessible to the general public.In creating Suncadia Legacy, CWU’s Dr. James E. Brooks Library and Suncadia Resort, LLC, partnered to preserve nearly 500 hours of video and audio oral history interviews and numerous photographic images and supporting materials documenting northern Kittitas County (Ronald, Roslyn, Cle Elum, and surrounding areas) from the period 1892-2004. As a result, over 100 years of local history has been preserved and made accessible through collective digitization efforts. As a result of the commitment and collaborative efforts of the following organizations and individuals, Suncadia Legacy is now viewable online:Mr. Frederick E. Krueger, Retired Teacher and Local HistorianMr. Paul Eisenberg, Senior Vice President, Development, Suncadia, LLCGeorge Blood, L.P., Audio/Video/Film PreservationMs. Patricia Cutright, Dean of Dr. James E.

"Satellites": Bringing an Astronomy Archives to the Stage.. Presentation/Theatrical Production. Special Collections Department: University of Arizona Libraries, Special Collections.More infoAs Curator for the History of Science Collections in SC, I played a major role (along with Lori Strazza in SC, MarComm) in planning for this special event since July 2022 in order to plan, organize, and present this special event highlighting the papers of noted astronomer, Tom Gehrels. Please see this event description below:In 2018, Natalie Songer–a theatre maker based in Norfolk, United Kingdom, who was trained at Goldsmiths College, University of London, and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland–traveled to Arizona to utilize Special Collections materials to research her great-great uncle, Tom Gehrels. Gehrels was a professor of planetary sciences and astronomy at the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory and the Department of Planetary Sciences from 1961 to 2011. Just a few months before his passing, in April 2011, he was honored by the university for his 50 years of service as an academic. Songer’s visit to Tucson and Special Collections resulted in Satellites, the play that she wrote about Gehrels and performed on stage in 2022. Satellites is described as an “an epic, bittersweet story of heritage, disappearance and space travel for the stage.” On December 5, at 6pm in the Special Collections Reading Room, Songer is back in Tucson to read from the play, show sections of the filmed UK production, and discuss how the Tom Gehrels Papers held in Special Collections influenced the making of her work. 'Satellites' debuted to a full house, Dec. 5Dec 11, 2022On Monday, Dec. 5, Natalie Songer's live, multi-media performance, "Satellites," made its U.S. debut to a full house. Songer, who is based in the UK, wrote and performed "Satellites," about the work of her great-great-uncle, Tom Gehrels, a professor of planetary sciences and astronomy at the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory and the Department of Planetary Sciences from 1961 to 2011.Songer traveled to Tucson from the UK in 2018 to spend a week researching Gehrels with the help of Special Collections. Satellites adeptly and creatively weaves multiple storylines and timelines. Many extended family members were in the audience, including Gehrel's widow who had a speaking part in the show.Originally from the Netherlands, Gehrels immigrated to the U.S. where he met his wife and began his new life. Just a few months before his passing, in April 2011, he was honored by the university for his 50 years of service as an academic.You can view the Tom Gehrels Papers in Special Collections.
