Do you know of any collections that are currently at risk and need preserving?
Mind and Matter: Sharing and Caring for Collections and Colleagues
I am currently working at the Arts museum of Nantes (France) on an exhibition exploring the influence of Charlie Chaplin on avant-garde artists. The exhibition will take place at the end of 2019 and will then travel to Louvre Abu Dhabi.
For the purpose of the exhibition we are trying to locate first editions of Kino-Fot, issues 2 and 3, in Europe (we found original copies in the US and in Russia already). I was wondering if someone was aware of a European collection holding such editions?

The Smithsonian National Postal Museum provides a list of philatelic and postal history museums, libraries and archives worldwide with links to their websites.
I may have been the last to visit the archives (I wanted to get there before they moved in case there wasn't an opportunity to see these materials again), but I'm afraid I don't have much of an update beyond echoing some of the uncertainty. When I went, the building was getting pretty empty as the organization prepared to move, and David Rose was unsure about what the plans for the archive were, though obviously he was a strong advocate for their continued use and preservation. It would be awful if they never became available again, but the situation doesn't seem very reassuring.

We are seeking proposals for a session titled "Uses of the Judiciary in the Americas". It is part of the Institute for the Americas Conference which will be held in October 2019 in Paris. The proposal are to be sent to the conference before the 15th of October 2018.
Does anyone know the fate of the March of Dimes Archive? My understanding is that the MoD headquarters in White Plains is closing; the archives are being shipped to Arlington, VA; the current archivist, David Rose, is not going and does not know if the archives will continue to be available to researchers.
