The Fall 2018 MARAC Meeting returns to historic Wilmington, Delaware, October 11-13.

MARAC Wilmington co-chairs sought to bring a fresh vision to the program, and after surveying MARAC members, a few themes emerged as “most wanted” among prospective meeting attendees: accessibility; new professionals; archival education; leadership; diversity; and underrepresented archives (public libraries, small repositories, and lone arrangers). These themes have been transformed into “tracks.” In taking such an approach, attendees may easily and efficiently plan their conference by focusing on topics most important to them and/or their repositories.

Please view the Conference Program for all meeting details.
