The Program Committee of the Fall 2017 Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference, which will be held in Buffalo, New York on October 26-28, is accepting proposals for posters that showcase the work of the MARAC membership. Posters may describe applied or theoretical research projects that are completed or in progress; highlight interesting collections with which individuals or groups have worked; or focus on archives and records projects in which MARAC members have participated (e.g., collecting initiatives, preservation activities, new methods of providing reference and other services, etc.). Submissions should focus on research or activity conducted within the previous year (2016-2017).
Posters must be 32 inches by 40 inches in size and may read vertically or horizontally.
Notifications regarding accepted submissions will be sent in late September 2017. At the MARAC Buffalo meeting, one session time slot and location will be devoted to presentation and discussion of the posters.
To submit a poster proposal, please complete the proposal form (https://goo.gl/forms/HCAaFGZVgeSdEbKJ3) no later than 11:59 PM Eastern Time on September 15, 2017. Proposals received after this date will not be considered, and e-mailed submissions or submissions in any other format will not be accepted.
This call for proposals is open to ANY student or professional engaged in archival work or research, and group proposals are welcome.
