Bobbi Sago, Black Hills State University special collections librarian and assistant professor, was recently elected to the South Dakota State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB).  

As a member of the South Dakota SHRAB, Sago will take part in board meetings and assist with workshops on document preservation.

The board’s mission is to advocate for the preservation of historical records, educate the public and records-caretakers about the importance of the historical record, and lead the historical community in preserving, promoting, and providing access to the state’s documentary heritage. 

Sago was also recently invited to serve on the board of directors for the West River History Conference.  This organization hosts an annual conference in October to promote the region’s history.

Sago joined the BHSU faculty in 2003.  She has a bachelor’s degree in drama from the University of Montana at Missoula and her master’s in library and information science from The Catholic University of America.
