Welcome to the website of the Visual Materials Section of the Society of American Archivists. We hope you find this site informative and the resources in it useful. The Visual Materials Section promotes communication among visual materials archivists, and represents and promotes appropriate care, management, and use of visual materials collections to the greater archival community through annual meetings, continuing education programs, publications, our VIEWS Magazine (http://saavms.org/views-archive/) and this web site.
Whether you are a member of the Section or of SAA or not, we welcome your use of this site and your input on what you find here. Get involved with your peers, learn from experienced colleagues, and help others by sharing your wisdom and knowledge. Many hands make light work, and bouncing ideas around as we do both in our meetings and via our online lists can very often produce amazing results, creative solutions, and efficiently and effectively round up information that would be impossible to assemble otherwise. Collectively we are more powerful than the sum of our individual parts.
Please also take a look at our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/saavms?fref=ts) and follow us on Instagram (@SAAVMS)!
And if you have questions about who we are and what we do, please contact any of our 2017-2018 Steering Committee!
