2004 Electronic Records Research Symposium
In 2004, the symposium was held in the Pleasants Family Room at Wilson Library on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Ken Thibodeau, Director of the Electronic Records Archives Program at the National Archives and Records Administration, delivered the keynote address.
A number of other archival researchers (i.e., Wendy Duff, Philip Eppard, Beth Yakel, Helen Tibbo, Richard Pearce-Moses) presented research on a variety of topics.
The 2004-2005 fellowship recipients (i.e., Druscilla Simpson, Nancy Kunde, Rebecca Schulte, Helen Samuels) discussed their research ideas with symposium participants in the afternoon.
