We hope everyone had a happy and festive holiday season! We're excited to be back and ready to announce a new slate of programs for 2017. Last fall, DHPSNY's webinars helped New York's institutions develop and implement new funding strategies, rethink the way they house and maintain their collections, and establish best practices for digital preservation. For the New Year, we've lined up another series of free presentations catered to the needs of small- to medium-sized collecting institutions.
