CFP - New England Archivists Meeting

*Call for Session Proposals* Spring 2013 New England Archivists Meeting College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, Massachusetts March 21-23, 2013 Program Focus: Creative Collaborations The New England Archivists Spring 2013 Program Committee invites you to submit proposals for the spring 2013 meeting, which will coincide with the organization's 40th-anniversary celebration. The focus of the program will be on creative, unique, and/or unexpected collaborations within and across institutional boundaries. How are archivists and records keepers of all stripes partnering with others both inside and outside of the profession to further their goals in the areas of access, research, preservation, education, advocacy, and/or outreach? Sessions may be theoretical, practical, and/or case-based in nature; focus on small- or large-scale collaborations (both successful and not so successful); and take any form (panel discussion, individual speaker, workshop, lightning round, PechaKucha, roundtable discussion, debate, etc.). Overall, the goal is to focus less on "here's what we did" and more on "how others may benefit or learn from our experience." We are hoping to receive a broad array of proposals from throughout the New England region. Your submissions should include the names and contact information of all participants. Please submit your proposals by Friday, September 14, to Peter Rawson ( and Amanda Strauss (
