Vietnam Center and Archive Featured on ilovelibraries.org

The Vietnam Center and Archive is being featured in the library showcase of the ilovelibraries.org website.  Ilovelibraries, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA), includes an article in their November issue by VNCA Associate Director/Archivist Mary Saffell titled An Archival Memorial: Documenting the War in Vietnam. This extensive piece includes an overview of the Center and Archive and our history, some of the unique collections held by the Archive, and ways for people to keep up with news about the VNCA.  The complete article can be read online at ilovelibraries.org.

The ALA was started in 1853 with the mission to promote library service and librarianship and currently has over 66,000 members.  The ilovelibraries.org site was launched in 2007 to “keep America informed about what’s happening in today’s libraries, focusing on public, school, corporate and institutional settings.”
