Upcoming MARAC Conferences
When: April 24-26, 2014
Here in Rochester, we offer you the chance to explore a city with a vibrant past that served as the home for historical figures such as Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony and George Eastman. Rochester is a city celebrated for its rich history of innovation, and the Local Arrangements and Program Committees have assembled a diverse program filled with tours and sessions to challenge and interest both archivists just beginning their careers and those with decades of experience. Many of the sessions focus on one or more of the conference’s three Rochester-inspired themes, “Film, Freedom, and Feminism,” but other sessions address a variety of additional topics as well. Beyond considerations of the sessions’ content, the Program Committee has ensured that this conference program is bursting with new ways of presenting information and of teaching, including a hands-on Wikipedia edit-a-thon, roundtables, and many opportunities for audience interaction. The program looks at the archival enterprise broadly, sometimes focusing on history, sometimes on initiating a discussion to develop a new archives project, sometimes on little seen types of archival records. The aim here is to present a rich world of possibility for your consideration. Read More from the Rochester Conference Program.

SPRING 2014 CONFERENCE RIDESHARE/ROOMSHARE INFORMATION
Use the following spreadsheets to find fellow MARAC Rochester attendees to share rides and hotel rooms. These spreadsheets are editable by anyone and all attendees are welcome to use them. Once you have found a ride or roommate, please come back and edit your information.
The spreadsheets are intended for informational use only. It is not a matching service; you need to use the information on the spreadsheets to find people with whom to share rides and rooms. Please use good judgment and common sense when reaching out to strangers. MARAC and MARAC officers are not responsible for the contents of these spreadsheets or for any actions that result from using these spreadsheets.
