The Twin Cities Archives Round Table is pleased to announce the tenth annual Minnesota Archives Symposium (MAS). Barring any drastic changes in the current health climate or apocalyptic events the Minnesota Archives Symposium will be in-person this year, with a hybrid option highly likely.
We are looking for host locations that can host approximately 100 humans (high estimate) safely and have the capacity to stream for members who will not be attending in person.
This year’s topic is Resilience and Growth. We are looking for presentations on practices that you will be keeping after the experiences of the last two years, proactive programs or projects, and celebrating our successes together.
Suggestions for presentation topics:
- Digital Records
- Diversity, equity and inclusion
- Outreach, public engagement, programming
- Arrangement, description, and cataloging
Call for Participants: Presenters, Panels, and Student Posters
We would especially like to hear from new institutions or those who have never spoken at a symposium before. We encourage presentations from archivists and information professionals at all levels of their career. We also welcome submissions to presentations submitted to or given at other conferences and symposiums, or perhaps you would like to update the group on a project mentioned in a previous presentation.
We are also continuing with the section for student poster presentations. Each student will be allocated 5 minutes for speaking on their topic and 2 minutes for question
If you are interested in presenting at the symposium, please provide us with a brief abstract and working title for your presentation, along with how long you wish to present (30 minutes/60 minutes). Include full contact information with submissions, including your name(s) and institution or school if applicable.
If you have a great idea but don’t think you can speak for an entire hour, please still submit your idea! We will attempt to pair you with other presenters with similar topics for a panel presentation.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submission is Monday, September 5, 2022.
