Several GSLIS master’s students were among fourteen students selected to present posters at the Midwest Archives Conference (MAC) Annual Meeting held this past April in Indianapolis.
Rachel Lux took second place for her poster, “All A-Twitter: Archiving the Public Record 140 Characters at a Time,” while Sarah Hoover earned third place for her poster, “Digitization for the Digital Humanities: Addressing Needs and Anticipating Uses.” Liza Booker, Mandi Goodsett, and Rachel Mattson also presented posters. The posters were judged on content, value to the profession, originality of the topic, and how the topic was presented.
The Midwest Archives Conference is the nation’s largest regional professional association for archivists, and their annual meeting brings together archivists, curators, and information professionals from across the country. Several of the posters and presentations from the conference can be found on the MAC website.
