The Society for Industrial Archeology (SIA) Records continue to grow as files generated by SIA officers and members are retired from active use and sent to the Archives Center.
The Archives Center only accepts materials documenting the functions of SIA as a professional organization. Examples of materials accepted include correspondence, conference programs, papers delivered at conference sessions, final reports, committee files, and photographs. We are not accepting digital records or personal papers that relate to non-SIA activities. For example, letters of recommendation and books and articles published by SIA members are not accepted.
When transferring records to the Archives Center, all records must be in labeled file folders. Please remove materials from hanging folders, binders, envelopes, and comb bindings, and remove binder clips from the records. Create a list of the folder titles in each box. Be sure that the list matches the order of the folders in the boxes.
Email the list of folder titles to the Archives Center and staff will schedule a time to pick-up the records or coordinate shipment. Please contact the Archives Center prior to sending your donation at 202-633-3270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
