MARAC Archives

The records of MARAC are housed at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). To learn more about the history of MARAC and the contents of the archives...

The MARAC Archives continues to grow as files generated by officers and other MARAC participants are retired from active use, forwarded to UMD, and processed into the collection. Whether you are a MARAC member, have served MARAC in some capacity, or have attended MARAC conferences or workshops, your donations of MARAC-related materials are welcome. To discuss the transfer of materials, contact the MARAC Archivist.
