Says Lawrimore, "I'm thrilled to be appointed to the Committee on Public Awareness. Through presentations, social media, and exhibits, we've worked to promote UNCG's stellar archives. I am happy to use these experiences along with my past work in public and media relations to collaborate with COPA and promote the archival profession."
Lawrimore is also serving as Editor in Chief of the new publication, Archival Practice, a new peer-reviewed, open-access journal hosted by the University Libraries at UNCG. In an introduction welcoming readers to the new journal, Lawrimore explains that it provides a scholarly forum for discussions of real-world applications of archival theories and practices in the modern archival repository.
