I found it very informative and was especially interested to learn about MD's upcoming historical anniversary.

I enjoyed it and found I learned many things from it. I had made a reservation but then couldn't be at my home computer. I listened to it live on Facebook. Will be interested in future presentations.

Interesting to learn about context...learned little about an archivist’s role in the national debate in light of political concerns.
