Description Section

The SAA Description Section provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas about all aspects of archival description among those responsible for, involved in, or interested in description projects, descriptive standards, and descriptive systems.

Membership in the Description Section is open to any member of the Society of American Archivists with an interest in archival description, descriptive standards, or descriptive systems. 

No submissions were received for the 2014 Description Expo.  We hope that you will take a look at the descriptive projects that you are involved in and consider submitting one for the 2015 Description Expo.
