This year’s Annual Meeting will feature two Specialized Tracks.

Sessions and events associated with a Track will be indicated as such in the Onsite Program guide.

Tribal Track
The Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums (ATALM)  is pleased to partner with AASLH to present a series of programs that inspired collaboration and provide insight into diverse cultures, with an emphasis on Native Nations. Sessions in this track include topics such as Native interpretation at battlefields, cultural considerations of object care, and digitizing Native American collections.

Historic Preservation Track
AASLH welcomes the 34th Annual Statewide Historic Preservation Conference for Minnesota to present sessions and programs focused on preserving the built environment and historic preservation. Sessions include topics such as interpreting historic commercial districts, using volunteers for preservation services, and the restoration of a Hurricane Katrina ravaged historic cottage. The Historic Preservation Track is sponsored by 3M.
