MAC Newsletter

The MAC Newsletter's primary mission is to share information about archival happenings in the Midwest and to promote through that sharing the archival services we bring to our constituents. Advocating the importance and value of archives in the Midwest lies at the core of MAC's existence and its newsletter supports that.

The newsletter is published by the MAC Newsletter Editorial Board, a standing committee which publishes the MAC Newsletter as a quarterly publication concerned with providing regular means of information and communication about MAC members. The Editorial Board consists of five to seven members including the Newsletter Editor, who will also serve as Board chair, and one member of Council. The Public Information Officer and Membership Coordinator will be full members of the committee by virtue of their office.

Each issue includes the following sections along with feature articles:

  • Archival Resources on the Web
