Looking to collaborate on a standard panel or lightning talk with other academic archivists who have partnered with their campus’s Black Student Unions to better fill gaps in their institutional history and/or celebrate recent anniversaries. This could be part of a broader discussion of how archives can help support diversity and inclusion efforts on our campuses.Hayley Jackson, jackha01@luther.edu Jessica Ballard: ballard9@illinois.eduRachael Acheson, achesonr@iastate.edu. (Iowa State University. Not with Black Student Union specifically, at least while I've been here, but with Latinx and AAPI Greek orgs for oral histories, and with student organizers to document campus protests.) Mark Sprang, Bowling Green State University, sprangm@bgsu.edu (Next month is our BSU's 50th Anniversary. We have done several popup exhibits and the like at the annual campus Black Issues Conference, as well as another event called Beyond the Dream). Annie Benefiel, Grand Valley State University, benefiea@gvsu.edu - Not Black Student Union, but we have a lot of collaborative community archives/digital collection projects that have created digital archival collections for Native American, Jewish, LGBT+, and migrant farming communities in West Michigan.

Looking to discuss web archives in various archival institutions. The issues of collection (tools), preservation, description, and public access could all be touched on. I am in a university archives and we use Archive-It to capture the university's web presence. Archivists using different tools and/or in different settings could really give a wide perspective on how to start web archiving and how to create access for patrons. Would love to hear any other ideas relating to web archives!Ashley Howdeshell, ahowdeshell@luc.eduKelsey O'Connell
kelsey.oconnell@northwestern.edu
Jennifer Johnson, jennifer_i_johnson@cargill.com, I can talk about why we chose Hanzo over Archive-It, issues we have with capturing internal web sites and the rudimentary way I do it. Would have little to contribute about access.
6
Looking to discuss advocating for archives with your congressional delegation. I am a political papers archivist who regularly meets with members of Congress about the importance of donating their materials to a repository and could speak to that piece, but am interested in having a larger converation about advocacy to Congress and public policy in general.Hope Bibens, hope.bibens@drake.edu

Looking to collaborate on a standard panel or lightning talk about programming and outreach in the archives, particularly focused on the Suffrage Centennial. Megan Rohleder megan.rohleder@ks.gov

Would like to put together a standard presentation on student interns or practicum students. My part would be to share my experience with interns from our School of Education as a way of suggesting that such students can be found in non-history programs.Kathy Gaynor kgaynor@webster.eduPatrick Milhoan, pmilhoan@nd.edu (In recent years, the University of Notre Dame has been able to support practicum students who are seeking their MLS through online programs not associated with the University of Notre Dame.)

Would like to do a panel on archives putting linked data to work. I got a university grant this year to write Wikipedia pages for our first five university presidents. A student will be paid to create these pages, as well as create/edit info for Wikidata. I'd like to create a panel that give archivists easy/achievable projects for those just now exploring linked data projects for their repositories.April Anderson-Zorn, aander2@ilstu.edu

Interested in putting together a standard presentation about applying critical theory to archival practice in order to advance social justice. I would apply Jacques Derrida's theory of hospitality to assess how we as archivists can create more welcoming environments for our users and potential users. Potential title: "Deconstructing the Archives."Taylor Fisk Henning, tfisk2@illinois.eduI am a MS/LIS graduate student looking to become involved in a MAC presentation or panel.

Many universities and other institutions have recently celebrated or will soon reach major milestone anniversaries. Looking to discuss how archives have collaborated with other departments/offices and leveraged the historical nature of an anniversary to draw attention to the archives; selection of major anniversary-year projects; and lessons learned. Probably a panel or lightning round, but open to ideas.Adriana Harmeyer, aharmey@purdue.eduKatie Nash, katie.nash@wisc.edu (need to consult with other staff first before committing, but am interested); Megan Badgley-Malone +1, badgle10@msu.edu (celebrating the MSU Archives' 50th anniversary); Matt Gorzalski, mgorzalski@lib.siu.edu, celebrating SIUC's 150th); Meg Galasso (galasso@iu.edu, celebrating Indiana University's 200th and Indiana University Kokomo's 75th)Just finished celebrating our 150th. Archives was integral to planning and execution of many aspects. Utilized and promoted our digital resources as part of this. Daardi Sizemore Mixon daardi.mixon@mnsu.edu Jennifer Johnson, jennifer_i_johnson@cargill.com, we celebrated our 150th in 2015, happy to discuss the projects, what worked well, what didn't, and how to have an element of fun. Projects: 150 stories, daily facts, flat founder, etc.jcoates@pnw.edu We have just gone through an institutional merger and our history students have just completed an experiential learning project, basically a self published institutonal history, in a partnership wuth the history department and the university archives We're commemorating the sesquicentennial of coeducation at our University. Involves many committees & factors (history vs. Marketing/Development/Alumni Relations)--Archives is at the center. Janet Olson, j-olson@northwestern.edu

Looking to collaborate for a standard presentation about corporate archives governance. I’m thinking topics broadly related to governance of confidential archives - disposition documentation, rights management, taxonomy, internal outreach, etc. My focus is on visual digital assets, but records management or paper-based prospectives welcome!Jocelyn Wehr, jocelyn.wehr@garmin.com

Interested in forming a panel on issues around private data/SEI in archival born digital records, e.g. whether/how the issues are different for electronic records as opposed to analog/paper-based material, challenges and success with various tools. Open to other ideas for formats.Lara Friedman-Shedlov
ldfs@umn.edu

Interested in forming a traditional/ lighting talk panel discussing major migrations. At Iowa State, as well as the other Iowa regent schools, we are currently migrating out of ContentDM into Islandora. In the session could discuss workflows, lessons learned, what we wished we knew before we started, etc. Lindsey Hillgartner,lah1@iastate.eduI could talk about the University of Minnesota Libraries' migration to ArchivesSpace (from EAD (xml) files in DLXS). Also have other colleagues who might be at MAC who could participate, if not me. We published a few articles in Journal of Archival Organization about our process and lessons learned, etc. Lara Friedman-Shedlov, ldfs@umn.edu;

I could talk about the Rock Hall‘s move from 3 collection mgmt dbs (library, archives, museum) into one - Jennie Thomas jthomas@rockhall.org

I'm always happy to talk about my experience migrating a variety of data into ASpace from Archivists' Toolkit/Past Perfect/Word Docs. Caitlin Wells, cwel@umich.edu;

We are currently in the early stages of a Cdm migration into Hyku/Samvera products. rebecca.pattillo@louisville.edu ;

Loyola University Chicago recently migrated collections from ContentDM to Preservica, ahowdeshell@luc.edu

I'd like to lead a roundtable-type session on best practices for sharing institutional knowledge when onboarding new employees. Who has great tips or practices? We can start with an overview of the problems we're having, then discuss practical solutions. Daria Labinsky, daria.labinsky@gmail.comCara Bertram, cbertra@illinois.edu

I'm interested in presenting a lightning round session on archival description and access decisions: what dilemma did you face and how did you address it? For example, not wanting to "out" but also not wanting to suppress LGBTQ people in the historic record; balancing 3rd party privacy with when mass digitizing collections/describing in a finding aid?, etc.Lydia Tang ltang5@msu.eduI am potentially interested in this. I'm brand new in my job, but implementing ASpace is one of my big projects and, between reviewing past descriptive practice and consolidating description for collections share across multiple units to increase ease of access, I'm sure I'll have lots of talk about by May! Lindy Smith lindysmith@umkc.edu

More than just "acts": Reparations, Equity, and Transparency. I'm interested in putting together a panel (the more ideas the better) addressing how we are systemically addressing painful history within our collections with our users, with collaborations with historically marginalized groups, and internally within our profession. This may include repatriation/rehoming collections, establishing mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations, dismantling our stereotype as "gatekeepers," and reassessing our recruitment, hiring, evaluation, and retention of archives workers of all ranks.Lydia Tang ltang5@msu.eduLaura Godden, lgodden@uwlax.edu, 608-785-8397. I have a few examples from my archive that could be utilized for this session idea. Also, I know of another archivist (who works at a public library) who might be interested in contributing to a session on this topic.

Lisa Huntsha, lisahuntsha@augustana.edu. In terms of painful history, we are hosting a one-day conference this fall looking at how Sweden (our collecting area) experienced WWII and the holocaust. I could talk about using outreach events to discuss this history. I’ll also be doing a small exhibit to coincide. Not sure if this is quite what you’re thinking, but thought I’d throw it out there.

Labor-focused set of presentations (90 minute block?). I'm planning on presenting the outcomes from the IMLS Collective Responsibility labor forums on grant-funded digital libraries, archives, and museums workers. We should have finalized our best practices/guidelines by the time of MAC so will be ready to share. You can read a public draft of our white paper for more details <http://bit.ly/CR-draft-paper>. While our grant covers grant-funded term workers, there are many other labor-related topics that could be covered, e.g., archivist salaries, ethical use of student labor, ethical position design, etc.Sandy Rodriguez rodriguezsan@umkc.edu
