27 Aug 2011 2:01 PM | Morgen MacIntosh Hodgetts

For those of you attending the SAA conference, you may notice that there are a lot of attendees who are getting nervous about making it home to Washington, D.C., North Carolina, or elsewhere along the eastern seaboard due to Hurricane Irene. As official and unofficial hosts, Chicago Area Archivists wanted to post a few suggestions of inexpensive places to stay … just in case they’re needed.

Arlington House, Lincoln Park  (Chicago Getaway Hostel), 616 W. Arlington Place
