Taking Care of Business (Archives) – MARAC Style, in Newark

When the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) comes to Newark in April 2017, it will be presenting a ground-breaking event: a first-ever MARAC forum dedicated to Business Archives. But, you don’t have to work for a corporation to attend this forum. Many archivists in the field are required to do cross-over records management functions for our institutions, and this forum will address the specific needs of archivists who have responsibility for managing and preserving business records.

The Business Archives Forum, taking place on Thursday, April 20 from 9 AM to 4:30 PM at the Best Western Robert Treat Hotel, consists of an informative and instructional agenda of presentations and interactive discussion sessions conducted by business archive professionals from the MARAC region. There will be something for everyone – from the corporate archivist to the small institution archivist in charge of keeping the institutional records.

You can view the full agenda and session overviews by accessing the Spring 2017 MARAC Newark webpage at https://marac2017newark.wordpress.com/ and selecting the Business Archives Forum tab. Join us and “take care of business” in Newark! For additional information, contact Emily Cottle at emilyrcottle@gmail.com.
