Who We Are and What We Do

The Society of Indiana Archivists (SIA) is an organization of archivists, researchers, and others who are actively concerned with establishing, developing, preserving, promoting, and using archival collections. 

SIA provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas related to archival collections and best practices, and it serves as a liaison among individuals and institutions working with archival collections in the state.

    The template of our past website served us well for many years but was discontinued by Wild Apricot, our membership management platform. Some features were no longer supported and it was time for a refresh.

    The 2021 SIA Annual Meeting will be held virtually on April 29th and 30th.  The 2021 theme, A New Normal: The Profession at a Crossroads will explore the changes within the profession initiated by the pandemic and social unrest around the country. Programs will cover topics pertaining to operating under quarantine, and in the era of COVID-19, how archives are responding to and capturing social movements like Black Lives Matter. For this “new normal,” we will go beyond the tips and tricks to how the events of 2020 may be reshaping what we do, how we do it, and the overall profession. 


    SIA will be offering discounted rates to this year’s annual meeting.

    SIA members: $25

    Non-SIA members: $35

    Students, retirees, and volunteers: Free

    You are invited to contribute your knowledge and experience with colleagues from around the state! The 2021 SIA Annual Meeting will be held virtually on April 29th and 30th.

    In accordance with the 2021 theme A New Normal: The Profession at a Crossroads, we will be looking for programs that discuss “the new normal”, including such things as operating under quarantine, and in the era of COVID-19, how archives are responding to and capturing social movements like Black Lives Matter. For this “new normal,” we hope to go beyond the tips and tricks to how the events of 2020 may be reshaping what we do, how we do it, and the overall profession.  

    We are looking for individual speakers, co-presenters, and panels. Speakers do not need to be SIA members. Students and new professionals are encouraged to submit a proposal. Sessions last approximately 35 minutes with at least 10 minutes for open discussion.

    Please submit your proposal via the link below.
    The deadline is Friday, January 15, 2021. 

    The deadline has been extended to February 15, 2021.
