Student Archivists at Maryland (SAM) is the university's chapter of the Society of American Archivists, one of the major professional organizations for the information studies field. Formed in 1995, SAM's primary functions include hosting lectures and forums, organizing tours of local archival repositories, and planning an annual Americana conference. The organization's records span from its start in 1995 through 2011 and include the constitution, bylaws, and annual reports, as well as meeting minutes, membership lists, financial statements, and email correspondence. Information about chapter events and outreach, such as book sales and fundraising, is also incorporated. The collection includes photographs from a Society of American Archivists student poster session. Some of the above information has been transferred via CD-ROM. Collection inventories have been prepared, but are not currently available online.
