The Local Arrangements and Program committees welcome MARAC to the April 14-16, 2016, meeting in Pittsburgh. We just can’t wait to show off the city and show you why Pittsburgh is such a highly-touted travel destination for culinary explorations, cultural heritage sites, and all things ARCHIVES! From your base at the historic and elegant Omni William Penn Hotel, you’ll be minutes away from world-class museums, acclaimed restaurants, and a collection of vibrant neighborhoods that combine rust-belt grit with modern cool. You’ll also be at the “confluence” of an engaging program that will help you learn from your colleagues and leave you inspired and ready to take on new archival challenges. Read More (from the Pittsburgh Conference Program).
The Local Arrangements Committee has also created a website which provides an excellent overview of the Pittsburgh Conference at https://marac2016pittsburgh.wordpress.com/.
Our meeting will be held at the Omni William Penn Hotel with a contracted room rate of $159. Please click on the link below to go directly to the hotel website for registration:
SPRING 2016 CONFERENCE RIDESHARE/ROOMSHARE INFORMATION
Use the following spreadsheets to find fellow MARAC Pittsburgh attendees to share rides and hotel rooms. These spreadsheets are editable by anyone and all attendees are welcome to use them. Once you have found a ride or roommate, please come back and edit your information accordingly.
The spreadsheets are intended for informational use only. This is not a matching service; you need to use the information on the spreadsheets to find people with whom to share rides and rooms. Please use good judgment and common sense when reaching out to strangers. MARAC and MARAC officers are not responsible for the contents of these spreadsheets or for any actions that result from using these spreadsheets. The spreadsheets will be deleted on April 23, 2016, one week after the MARAC conference ends.
