2014 Presidential Sites and Libraries Conference

The Presidential Sites and Library Conference is held every four years and is hosted at a site with connections to the American presidency and includes attendees representing institutions from all regions of the country and from across the spectrum of the historical profession. Presidential sites are the memory keepers of each presidency. They remind us of the best each of these Presidents had to offer in leadership, character, and service. But should they offer only a snapshot in history? For more information about this year's conference, to be held June 2-5 at the Clinton Presidential Center, in Little Rock, Arkansas,  visit: http://about.aaslh.org/2014-psl-conference/.
