Educational Resources

MAC is committed to providing continuing education and career support by sharing resources and offering accessible, affordable educational opportunities through its meetings, pre-conference workshops, and Speaker’s Bureau program.

Regional Educational Programs

As a service to our members and our region, the Education Committee maintains a directory of educational institutions within our borders that provide archival training. The list will be updated continually; if you have additions or suggestions concerning the directory, please contact the chair of the MAC Education Committee.

Please note that MAC does not accredit or endorse any educator, course, or institution.

Speaker's Bureau

After receiving Council approval to continue as a long-term program at the spring 2016 meeting, the Speaker's Bureau is back! See the MAC Speakers Bureau website for more information about the program.

The Education Committee is seeking to flesh out its existing listing of available workshops (coming early in 2017) and we need your help! The MAC region has a lot of talented professionals with a wide variety of skill sets. If you're interested in teaching a workshop for MAC, either at an annual meeting or as part of the Speaker's Bureau, we'd love to hear from you. You can simply complete this workshop proposal form.

MAC's New Career Planning Forum

Borne out of discussions at the MAC Annual Meeting in Lexington, the web forum is a communication tool in which all can share advice, wisdom, questions, etc., about ways to develop one’s archival career.

To post questions and responses, participants are required to register (see the upper right-hand corner of the page). All can read the discussion without registering, however.

A big thank you to University of Illinois Archives staff member Anna Trammell for creating this tool for MAC members.
