Pop-up Session Proposals for MARAC Fall 2017

The Fall 2017 Program Committee is seeking proposals for one pop-up session at the MARAC meeting in Buffalo, New York, October 26-28. This session, which will take place on Friday, October 27 from 11:15 AM-12:15 PM, will enliven the conference program by focusing on ideas or issues that have “popped up” since December 2016, when initial session proposals were due.

Pop-up session proposals enable presenters to share what is going on in their own work, volunteer, study, or research spaces, highlight non-traditional repositories or services, or address emerging technological, recordkeeping, and other issues. Anything is on the table!

This session is only sixty minutes long and will be a “lightning round”, featuring multiple 7-10 minute presentations.

This call for proposals is open to ANY student or professional engaged in archival work or research, including individuals who are presenting in another Fall 2017 meeting session. Individual and group proposals are both welcome.

If you are interested in participating in the pop-up session, submit your proposal via the following Google form: https://goo.gl/forms/iT4Xasuw7LbrzjXg2. Proposals will be accepted until midnight Eastern Time on Friday, September 22. Proposals received after this date will not be considered, and e-mailed submissions or submissions in any other format will not be accepted.

The Fall 2017 Program Committee will review proposals and notify selected panelists by 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday, October 6.

If you have any questions or encounter issues when using the submission form, please contact the Program Committee co-chairs at cbendroth@pa.gov or bonita.weddle@nysed.gov
