Welcome to MARAC

Organized in 1972, MARAC is a volunteer, regional consortium of archivists who live and work in the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, and in the District of Columbia.

 

MARAC Announcements


MARAC strongly opposes the President’s executive order that restricts entry into the United States by people from seven Muslim-majority countries because it affects our members and those communities we strive to serve, and because it is incompatible with our goal to be an organization supportive of diversity and inclusion of all people. MARAC applauds and endorses the Society of American Archivist Statement on the Executive Order, as well as other recent related statements by the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Libraries, and other professional associations.
