Doctor Woestman goes to Washington


Much of what a professor does happens outside of the classroom. Dr. Kelly A. Woestman, PSU Department of History, illustrated this recently as she participated in the November meeting of the National Archives and Records Administration's Advisory Committee for the Electronic Records Archives (ACERA) in Washington, D.C.

"At the conclusion of the meeting, Adrienne Thomas, who is Acting Archivist of the United States, asked us to attend a congressional subcommittee hearing in the Rayburn House Office Building," said Woestman.

 Missouri Congressman William Lacy Clay chaired the Information Policy, Census, and National Archives Subcommittee of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

"Congressmen Clay recognized each ACERA committee member present and their individual professional affiliations, including Pittsburg State University, as part of the official record of the hearing," she said.

The subject of the hearing was "The National Archives' Ability to Safeguard the Nation's Electronic Records."

Congressman Clay also asked to meet with the committee members at the conclusion of the hearing.
