Introduction to the EAP International Digital Archive and a Thank You Letter

Under the leadership of Jodi Jacobson-Frey and Patricia Herlihy, The International EAP Digital Archive was developed beginning in 2013.  Initially developed out of a need to for the EAP field to preserve its history on a free accessible website where all historical and current documents, presentations and multimedia on EA related materials could be shared on a global level.  Over the years the Archive has grown tremendously with articles, and documents reaching back to 1948.  The University of Maryland School of Social Work is host to the archive and they and the aforementioned individuals were recognized with an award for Best Use of Technology.  The DC/Chapter among others donated 500.00 that contributed to the travel expenses allowing Jodi and Pat to receive the award.  Please take note of Pat’s heartfelt thank you note.  Thank you.
