The Twin Cities Archives Round Table is pleased to announce the seventh annual Minnesota Archives Symposium (MAS). MAS is a local educational and networking opportunity for archivists, librarians, records managers, curators and other information professionals. We seek to broaden opportunities to share knowledge and insights among peers at a local level. The Symposium will be held on Monday, November 5th at the Carondelet Center in Saint Paul.

This year’s topic will be: Balancing Act in the Archives

Whether you’re a solo archivist or part of a large archival department, in this profession we all have many tasks to undertake over the course of our day. As job descriptions can sometimes read as in charge of “everything under the sun,” we are often faced with struggling to accomplish it all. How do we balance all of these different hats, especially when some are seen as competing priorities — bringing in new collections versus paying attention to old collections, privacy versus access, cultivating old donors versus going after new donors? As an archivist, how do you tackle the juggling act?

More information to come.
