Archivaria, the journal of the Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA), is devoted to the scholarly investigation of archives in Canada and internationally. Archivaria is published semi-annually in spring and fall with grateful acknowledgement for assistance provided by the University of Toronto and the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre. Archivaria is available by print or online subscription. Reprints of published articles as well as back issues are also available.
Contemporary archivists are engaged in a broad range of work within the field of archives. Whether through their work environment; through initiatives in the digital realm; through their involvement with communities to document, preserve, and provide access to their records; and through other outreach endeavours, archivists are involved in a variety of spaces. In the Field is a place for discussion about the wide range of issues encountered and raised in these spaces related to archives, archival education, and archival interventions.

What is it? Scope and Content is a news digest, or round-up of news about business, activities, events, initiatives, and calls for participation relevant to the ACA. It is sent directly to ACA members' email inboxes. Its goal is to ensure that readers know what the ACA is up to and have opportunities to plug in.
What do we want from community members? Send us info (and especially links!) to any news from your committee/group. That might include workshops, group meet-ups, conference-related news, calls for volunteers, new or completed initiatives, and more!
