Fundraiser for the Wayne State University chapter of the Society of American Archivists to attend Archives*Records 2018 conference in Washington D.C.

Our Story

Members of the Wayne State University Student Chapter of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) are seeking your support to attend the annual conference of the Society of American Archivists. With this in mind, we are selling T-Shirts to help defray the cost of some of our members to attend.

This year's conference for archivists and records managers will be held in Washington D.C. this August. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity for aspiring archivists to network, learn industry best practices, and discover innovative techniques. Attendance at the conference will also allow us to showcase a project we have been selected to display. More specifically, SAA officials invited our chapter to present a poster about a project to digitize the Michigan Black History Bibliography Index, an expansive card file designed to provide researchers with citations to both prominent and obscure resources documenting the history of African Americans in Michigan. Developed in the mid-1970s and housed at Wayne State University's Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs, it contains citations to sources. A digitized version of the index will allow a wider array of researchers to make use of it. We're excited about presenting the results of this project during the conference in August. No more than three chapter representatives will be presenting the poster, but we feel that nothing should prevent additional archival students from joining us. Your support will allow more of our members to attend.

Upon completion of the campaign, the funds generated will be equally distributed among all student chapter members attending the conference, whether or not they were involved in the poster. These t-shirts bear the seal of Wayne State University alongside the name of the archival program.  Purchasing t-shirts will not only help a group of students advance their education, but prepare the next generation of archivists for careers in the field. We thank you in advance for your support of our endeavors.

What a wonderfully designed shirt!! Plus, what a great opportunity to help send a delegation to DC to represent WSU's School of Information. The opportunity it affords to allow so many to experience the exceptional talent of these student to not only represent the University, but to also shine a bright light on WSU, Detroit and our State. Good Luck!
