This year's Midwest Archives Conference (MAC) Annual Meeting was held at the Renaissance Center in Detroit from April 4th-6th. It was the first time I attended this regional conference, and I enjoyed connecting with Minnesota colleagues and meeting new people. The speakers and sessions were really interesting and informative too, starting with a plenary by Viranel Clerard, a community art advocate who runs the Detroit Mural Project; a digital catalog of 1000+ public art murals in the city of Detroit. Other highlights included a session on increasing diversity in the archival profession, the benefits resulting from collaborations with on-campus museums, lessons learned from problematic collection donations, and how archival materials contributed to the success of a community archaeological project.
