Infinite Conversations

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Saturday, September 23, 2017

Program description:

The New England Archivists Fall 2017 Meeting will offer all archivists and associated professionals a chance to speak and to be  heard. We are keeping it simple at this half-day meeting, hoping to draw strength from one another in small, facilitated discussions about the work we do and the work we would like to do. Let’s talk!

  • Listen to and share ideas about our profession, reflect on our work and priorities, discover opportunities, and learn from colleagues.
  • Connect with one another, whether new professionals or veterans, through conversations, and empower ourselves to thrive in our professional environment.
  •  Build community: this is a meeting for everyone.

directions & Parking:

Meeting registration is in Building 14 north corridor, Hayden Library, MIT campus. See Campus Map. 

Public Transportation, MBTA ("The T") :
Take the Red Line subway to the Kendall/MIT Station. It is the fifth stop from the northern end of the MBTA Red Line at Alewife Station, which you can access from Route 2 and which has a Parking Garage.

The Kendall/MIT Station is on the eastern side of campus, about an 8-minute walk to Building 14. Access to the MIT campus from Kendall Square is limited due to construction in the area. Exit the Red Line, walk north on Main Street, then left on Ames Street toward the Charles River. You will see a street to your left (Amherst Street) and a sidewalk opposite that to your right. Take the right and walk straight along the sidewalk (tennis courts will be on your left) until you see a large black steel sculpture (“The Big Sail” by Alexander Calder). Immediately after the sculpture on the left is Building 14, and the rear entrance (north side) is at the corner, in front of you: there are stairs and a ramp into the building. Building numbers are on doors.

There is parking available in the MIT Albany Street garage (credit card gated self-service, $8 ), building N4 on the campus map. Entrance to the garage is from Albany Street between building N4 and building 46. See

There are also public parking garages in the Kendall Square area, some with Saturday rates. Searching “Saturday parking in Kendall Square” on the web will give you options. Parking is also available at the MBTA Red Line Alewife station (see above under Public Transportation).
