hi, friends! i’m sam, and i’m a web archivist for an academic library consortium (mostly on the east coast). i’m also at @sabrams! Mastodon is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce β€œglamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles.
