Announcing Archives 101 Online Course!
The winter months are officially behind us, and SPRING has sprung. In order to make sure you have access to valuable information, helpful resources, and opportunities to develop and grow, DHPSNY is excited to provide new Online Courses—free of cost to NY institutions. A great alternative to DHPSNY’s face-to-face workshops, our hope is that you find these courses a convenient and engaging way to learn and expand your knowledge as we transition to the post-COVID-19 era.
Our first online course, Archives 101, is a 4-week asynchronous course intended for individuals who manage cultural collections, with a focus on individuals who are new to working with archives, who may not have had formal archival training, or who are looking to refresh their knowledge of archival management basics. Topics covered in this online course include essential archival policies and procedures; fundamentals of appraisal, acquisitions, and accessioning; basic processing techniques and considerations; and access to collections.

With a flexible learning environment, this course combines the convenience of on-demand, virtual education with the benefits of interactive learning. Each week, content will be released focusing on a different sub-topic of archives management, and participants will then be able to work through this content at their own pace while interacting with instructors and fellow classmates throughout the week. Each weekly module will include the following:
- Series of brief, pre-recorded, lectures presented by DHPSNY staff
- Mini-quiz checkpoints to test your knowledge
- Interactive discussion boards
- Comprehensive resource guides
