As we wrap up 2017, more than 1,200 people from collecting institutions throughout New York State have taken advantage of DHPSNY's free educational webinars and workshops, and we're excited to carry that momentum into the New Year! Thanks again to everyone who joined us yesterday, and thanks to DHPSNY Archives Specialist Amelia Parks for a very informative presentation!
