About Us

Views is the semiannual publication of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) Visual Materials Section (VMS). VMS promotes communication among visual materials archivists, and represents and promotes appropriate care, management, and use of visual materials collections to the greater archival community. Evolving from a newsletter and digital magazine, Views became a blog in Fall/Winter 2019, with the intention of being more accessible to all VMS members.

Accepting content year-around! Please see submission guidelines for more details.

Interested in joining the editorial team? Views is looking for members willing to draft and edit posts as well as brainstorm content themes and solicit authors. Contact us at saavms.blog@gmail.com.
