Archives as Community calls for archives professionals to assess the relationships that enable them to conduct their work within changing cultural, technological and financial environments. For the 2015 annual meeting, the Program Committee is seeking presentations on the following topics:
- Partnerships and projects with communities, including documentation initiatives, the preservation of civic memory, and the creation of community-based archives
- Internal or external collaborations to achieve needed funding, resources, technology, space, or to accomplish other significant repository goals
- Experiences with volunteers, interns, student assistants, members of the public or other nonprofessional archivists to process, promote, or make collections available
- Any other research or program that illustrates how archives have addressed the needs of their communities and cooperated with stakeholders
To submit a proposal, fill out the form and return to Heather Oswald at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 5, 2015. The Program Committee is accepting both individual presenter and full session submissions. If you have any questions about the theme, presentation ideas, or the annual meeting program, please contact Heather Oswald.
