    The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York (ART) welcomes contributions for the summer 2024 issue of the Metropolitan Archivist, ART’s online digital publication featuring short- and long-form articles, reviews and interviews, and collection spotlights.

    The forthcoming issue of the Metropolitan Archivist is organized around the theme of (Comm)unity/Division - considering the value of collaboration and the challenges inherent in archival work, as well as exploring how these themes are present in the personal lives and institutional histories documented within our archival collections.

    We want to hear about projects you’ve worked on across and within institutions; opportunities that you’ve seized to make your collections more accessible or to connect with the communities whose histories you preserve; competing interests related to working on sensitive collections, those with ties to current political or social events, and the trade-offs between privacy and access to information; and the role of archives during times of political strife.

    Other questions to ponder include:

    • How can archivists balance their roles as “neutral” stewards and active community members?

    • What are some misconceptions about archives and archivists that you would like to dispel through collaboration?

    • What are the benefits and drawbacks of leveraging new technologies like machine learning to share and reinterpret archival collections?

    We also seek reviewers for exhibitions and books, as listed on the submission form. Additional suggestions welcome, particularly those which relate to this issue’s theme.

    Please send a brief pitch (maximum 500 words) or select an exhibition/publication to review via this form by Friday, March 8th for consideration. Selected authors will be notified by Friday, March 15th, and final drafts with cleared images permissions are due by Monday, April 22nd.

    This letter originally appeared in the Winter 2024 issue of the Metropolitan Archivist

    Dear A.R.T. Members:

    I hope this notice finds you all well and settling into the routine of the new year!

    The beginning of a new year can bring with it an opportunity for change and growth, and the Executive Board looks forward to continuing the good work we started at the beginning of the 2023-2024 term.

    Thus far, we have adopted a minor restructuring of board positions to better align with our organizational needs, increased annual membership dues to keep pace with our growing operational costs, and added a donation page to our website to facilitate funding possibilities. We continue to bring you engaging programming events that provide opportunities for education and connection among and between colleagues, and we look forward to new engagement opportunities and exciting growth possibilities as we move through 2024.

    In order to grow in the ways we envision, we need your active participation in all things A.R.T — not only by making a tax deductible donation on our website, which we strongly encourage, but also by donating your time by becoming a Board Director or volunteering to be on one of our open committees. We currently have a few open Director positions, and others will become available in the upcoming June 2024 election cycle.

    Serving as a Director or committee volunteer is an opportunity to invest your time and energy to the work of aligning our organizational structure with our mission. We are grateful for our members who can come together in community and help move us through this needed process, and we welcome all interested voices to be involved directly, constructively, and tangibly in sustaining and growing the organization that so many of us care deeply about and believe in.

    As we move forward in the actualization of our mission, the Board will continue to take a deep look into our work, both philosophically and operationally, in order to better the organization as a whole, and to best serve the needs of you, its members. We thank you for your continued patience and trust in the executive team and encourage you to always reach out with your issues and concerns.

    I wish you all the best both personally and professional for this new year!

    Best Regards,

    Deidre Dinnigan

    President

    Dear ART Members, Friends, and Sponsors –

    Thank you for being a valued part of the ART community.

    We are writing to let you know that there will be an increase in membership fees to be put into effect on January 1, 2024, for all new applicants and renewals as they occur. 

    We understand that any fee increase is not ideal and have done our best to keep the rates unchanged.  However, our operating costs have increased significantly in the seven years since our last increase and after a careful review of our finances, we have made the tough decision to increase our dues for all tiers in the following manner:

    • Students: $15
    • Regular: $45
    • Friends: $45
    • Sponsors: $75
    • Institutions: $150

    Please be assured that this was not an easy decision and we have made every effort to keep this increase to a minimum. We anticipate that these new rates will help ensure that we continue to provide you with the high-quality programs and benefits you deserve. 

    If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to president@nycarchivists.org

    We thank you for your understanding and support.I
