Simon Ertz, Hoover Centennial Librarian for Collection Analysis

For one hundred years, Hoover Library & Archives has been a scholarly hub for the study of Russian, Slavic, and Eurasian history. This November, Hoover curators, scholars, and staff members welcomed historians as part of the annual meeting of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) in San Francisco. Hoover affiliates hosted two panels discussing the rich collections at Hoover and the digital future of the archival field. Above, Simon Ertz, Hoover Centennial Librarian for Collection Analysis, discusses the robust collections of propaganda pamphlets held in Hoover Tower. Other speakers at Hoover's panels were Bert Patenaude, Elena Danielson, Michael Herrick, Edward Kasinec, Marissa Rhee, and Anatol Shmelev.
