MAC in St. Louis

The Midwest Archives Conference 2009 program will be held in St. Louis, Missouri at the beautiful Hyatt Regency - St. Louis Riverfront, April 29 - May 2. Open to all, this year's sessions range from ethics to video preservation, donor policies, and more. Several pre-conference workshops and tours are also offered.
Of particular note is the session, "Flight Check: Archival Metrics Toolkits as User-Based Evaluations in Archives and Special Collections." This session presents these concepts to a general archival audience, giving an overview of the types of user-based evaluation the different methodologies employed, and explaining how various methods can be used in tandem to help repositories argue for greater support, create strategic plans targeted at specific audiences, and better serve their users.
The Midwest Archives Conference is open to anyone in the records management and archival fields, and at only $75.00 for advance registration ($65 for MAC members) this three day conference is an exceptional value. To take advantage of this special rate your registration must be postmarked by April 10, 2009. Full program descriptions are available at
