News for the Field
MAAM is pleases to introduce new resources as a service to the field. Come back to this section often, as we expand these opportunities.
Please mark your calendars for the Fall 2017 meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference, October 26-28, 2017 in Buffalo, New York at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo/Hotel and Conference Center.
MARAC is a professional association of archivists working in the Mid-Atlantic States including the U.S. National Archives. At least 200 archival professionals are expected to attend the meeting.
The conference is themed around "Reinvention and Renewal: Putting the Shine on the Nickel City." Sessions will focus on archival ethics, web archiving to enhance the democratic principle of transparency and accountability, partnerships between archives and records management programs and documenting current political movements. Other sessions will center on access enhancements to Holocaust records and a session on the National Death Penalty Archives. Institutional mergers and archives and a dialogue about digital projects and their users will also be presented. A student poster session will be featured as well.
Students are encouraged to attend and to take advantage of a special rate offered by MARAC.
