    1. Enjoyed the read. American and Canadian archivists have a different history, and somewhat different processes, but I cannot say that I did not gain some extra insight from the read. In fact, I'm glad to know more about a perspective on international archives. I think what Canadian archivists are experiencing and have experienced definitely can apply some way to what I experience as an American archivist.
