November Workshops Announced
We're excited to announce the first of our educational workshops! Join us Tuesday, November 15, in Highland or Thursday, November 17, in Glens Falls for Understanding Archives: An Introduction to Archival Basics, a discussion of archival fundamentals led by DHPSNY Program Coordinator Anastasia Matijkiw. Stay tuned for a third location to be announced shortly.
Proper archival procedures enable safe and effective management of collections, yet volunteers, historians, and those with archival responsibilities in addition to other duties may find themselves in the position of "archivist" without formal training in the profession. Topics covered during this workshop include the fundamentals of archival appraisal, acquisition, and access; proper storage materials; and the most common preservation problems found with paper-based archival collections. This workshop will also provide an overview of archival processing, arrangement, and description.
Presenter: Anastasia Matijkiw, Program Coordinator, DHPSNY
Registration: 9:15 - 9:30 AM
