Wed, 10/21/2020 - 15:52

In last week’s webinar Conducting a Basic Inventory, DHPSNY Archives Specialist Kate Philipson discussed the process and principles for carrying out a basic inventory for archival, library, or museum collections. She thoroughly examined several important questions, including “What is an archival inventory?”; “Why would you want to conduct an inventory?”; “How do you approach such a big project?”; and “What are your next steps, when is it finished?.” This highly organized and accessible presentation is perfect for organizations new to collections management, as well and those with established programs in need of a refresher.
