CAA Social Media Update

07 Nov 2017 4:43 PM | Erin Matson (Administrator)

Do you follow CAA on Twitter? How about Facebook? CAA is on both as @ChicagoArchvsts (Twitter) and @chicagoarchivists (Facebook), and we have a new team tweeting and posting our content!

Lisa Geiger works with the Exhibits Registration department at the Field Museum and has a background in cultural resource collection management and archival processing. She is currently enrolled in the UIUC iSchool MLIS LEEP program with an expected spring 2018 graduation date.

Derek Potts is an Archives Assistant at DePaul Special Collections and Archives. His work includes processing community collections and managing zine reproductions for incarcerated people. 

If you have news that you want CAA to post on our social media channels, you can contact Lisa (lisa.geiger@outlook.com) and Derek (rebeldepot@gmail.com) directly, or email info@chicagoarchivists.org with the subject line "Social Media." When submitting content, its helpful to include any or all of the following: 

  • Suggested caption
  • Links to any associated online content
  • Any associated hashtags or images
  • Recommended date of posting initial post as well as future reminders.
  • Any additional information or “talking points” that might be useful for the social media team to know in responding to any comments or questions that may arise, if applicable.
We also ask that you encourage your institutions and employers to follow us! We want to build our networks so that we can know when there is relevant news to share with our community. 

Last but not least, welcome and thanks to Derek and Lisa!
