student chapters

AMIA supports the establishment of AMIA Student Chapters at academic institutions to encourage increased awareness and understanding of the mission of AMIA and the role of moving image archivists in the acquisition, preservation, exhibition and use of moving image materials.

The purpose of the AMIA Student Chapter Program is to:

  • Introduce and integrate new archivists into the archival profession.
  • Enhance formal education by providing a forum for the discussion of archival issues and engaging students in professional activities.
  • Explain the importance and value of being part of the professional community.
  • Acquaint members with the objectives, ethics, and publications of AMIA.
  • Encourage membership in AMIA.
  • Develop and encourage interaction with other student groups to promote mutual interests in the library, information, and records professions; and
  • Introduce students interested in archives to professionals working in the field and archival institutions.

Student chapter activities traditionally include organizing events, tours, and speakers related to archives.
