2021 Virtual Fall Symposium

Join MAC for a Virtual Fall Symposium, Local Collections in the Digital Age, November 4-5, 2021, virtually hosted by Kansas City. Even though we won’t be meeting locally, this year’s Fall Symposium is all about local. As archivists seek to make the local history collections we build more diverse, inclusive, responsive and relevant, our approaches and methods have changed, and more often than not, those methods are digital. In addition, with many archives changing their approach to collection access out of necessity during the pandemic, our digital collections have become more important than ever. Join speakers from public libraries, academic libraries, media, government, and community organizations to explore tools and strategies for both collecting and sharing local history and collections. For full details, check out the Symposium page.
