Donald Peterson Student Travel Award: Alexis Recto

Alexis Recto is the 2019 recipient of the Donald Peterson Student Travel Award given by the Society of American Archivists. Established in 2005, the Donald Peterson Student Travel Award supports students and recent graduates from graduate archival programs within North America to attend SAA’s Annual Meeting. The goal of the scholarship is to stimulate greater participation in the activities of SAA, such as presenting research or actively participating in an SAA-sponsored committee or section.

Recto is a student at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the master of library and information science program and co-president of the UCLA SAA student chapter. During the Joint Annual Meeting, she will present “PROGRAMMING: Not Just for Professional Network but for Archival Community” during the Graduate Student Poster Presentations. The presentation is based on the activities of the UCLA student chapter from the past academic year and its focus on helping MLIS students better understand and effectively navigate the diversity and nuances of the archival field through thoughtful programming.

A supporter of Recto states, “Recto is a fantastic student, a highly motivated researcher, and an independent thinker who I am confident will change the field for the better.”
