New in Newark: Business Archives Forum

Something new is coming to MARAC in Newark – the MARAC Business Archives Forum!

In conjunction with our Spring 2017 conference we’re arranging a daylong event focused on business archives. All MARAC members are welcome, though the focus of the day will be business archives.

The day will include presentations related to the conference theme of Adaptable Archives: Redefine, Repurpose, and Renew, as well as ample time for informal networking among attendees.

Creative presentation topics and formats are encouraged. Sample proposals may be:
•Case studies / lessons learned
•Roundtable discussion of relevant topic
•Presentation of traditional research topic

The day is going to be built around whatever creative types of proposals are received, so sky’s the limit!

Proposals will be selected based on their relevance to business archivists specifically, alignments with the theme, and uniqueness of topics.

We’re currently accepting proposals for presentations, as well as looking for a handful of volunteers to help with the planning. More information on both opportunities can be found on the following Google form:

The deadline for proposals is Friday, June 3, 2016.
