Announcement regarding blog status

Since our members largely rely on GSLIS’s Moodle for event news, we’ve decided to retire blog  postings about events, opting for one central place to announce news. We’ve been unofficially following this strategy but figured we should announce it for those still checking the blog.

We still want to be able to share with potential students and the public what archives-related opportunities and resources are available at the University of Illinois. Therefore, we will keep available this information on the blog. Thank you for your interest in archiving at UIUC!
