The CAA listserv meets one of the CAA’s most important goals: to keep archivists in touch with each other, sharing knowledge, recommendations, and questions on a local level, with information specific to local sources and needs. Announcements of upcoming CAA events will be posted to the list. You do not need to be a CAA member in order to subscribe to the list.
The listserv is called Chi-Area-Archivists. It is hosted by Northwestern University Archives, courtesy of the Northwestern University Library.
