Committee on Research, Data, and Assessment

The Committee on Research, Data, and Assessment provides access to significant and useful data and research about SAA, American archives, and their users that evidence the value of archives for society and help us improve our services to SAA members and to our consumers. The Committee will work to conduct or support relevant research and to create, gather, and preserve data by directing and engaging in several areas of activity:

  • Providing SAA members with standardized tools for gathering and analyzing data;
  • Providing a repository or portal for data and other research outputs;
  • Providing training on gathering, analyzing, interpreting, and using data; and
  • Providing up-to-date and reliable basic facts and figures about archives and archivists.
