Blogs from Dumbarton Oaks
Blogs are a great way to communicate with a large and geographically disparate audience. They can also provide up-close and in-depth examinations of materials, processes, and events that aren't accessible to the general public. Dumbarton Oaks has several blogs that achieve all these goals, with plans for several more in the works.
Want to learn more about how a large collection of research and fieldwork papers are processed, or get a sneak peek at some great archaeological records? The Robert L. Van Nice Collection, a processing blog for the Robert L. Van Nice Records and Fieldwork Papers (1937–1985) at the Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives, is full of interesting finds and descriptions of archival processing work.
The online component for and record of The DO Conversations series, which offers opportunities to staff and fellows to participate in cross-disciplinary and interdepartmental discussions on a weekly basis, has an online component too! Check the DO/Conversations blog to learn more about this series of events.
Managed and authored by the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens staff, What's Blooming at DO is the official Dumbarton Oaks gardens blog. Featuring stunning photos of plants, insects, and garden architecture, this blog is a great way to experience the beauty of the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens whether you are able to visit them in person or not.
