Help plan the 2012 SAA-SC Conference

Interested in archives, rare books, special collections, or academic conferences?

Join the SAA-SC Conference Committee!

Each spring, the Indiana University Student Chapter of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) hosts a conference for graduate students and young professionals on topics related to archives, rare books, and special collections. Last year, we had over 50 attendees and presenters from as far away as Boston and Seattle! We couldn’t pull off such a successful event without help from SLIS students like you! The conference committee will meet periodically to discuss the following:

-Coming up with a conference theme
-Reading proposals and selecting presenters for the conference
-Conference advertising
-Organizing conference catering
-Assisting with various tasks the day of the conference (TBD date in March)

If you’re interested in being a member of the 2012 conference committee, our first meeting will be Wednesday, September 21 at 5:30 pm at the Starbucks in the Indiana Memorial Union.



The Society of American Archivists Indiana University Student Chapter seeks to: *provide a forum to address issues in the archival profession in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. *facilitate a meeting place for students with interests in Archives, Special Collections, Manuscripts, or Personal Papers. *raise awareness about archives and their importance in the university and surrounding community.
