Last featured in the 09-22-2017 issue of the Scout Report, Acid Free offers a fresh look at contemporary issues in cultural heritage preservation from Los Angeles-based archivists. Since being featured, the magazine has published issues covering themes such as Roots, Movement, and Space.
Acid Free is the biannual online magazine of the Los Angeles Archivists Collective. This vibrant, eclectic magazine, now in its thirteenth issue, will be especially relevant for librarians and archivists, but may also appeal to anyone interested in archives, history, or the Los Angeles area. The most recent issue centers on the theme of Money and considers the relationships between money, cultural heritage institutions, and labor advocacy, as well as looking at how money is present in archival collections. Readers will find, for example, an article investigating the use of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans by cultural heritage institutions to protect workers ("Where the Money Went"), and another looking at physical currency as an archival object ("A High Price to Pay"). Readers can check out all current and past issues of the magazine by scrolling the page linked above, or connect with the collective on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@laacollective on all three platforms).
