Will you be at this year's American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works (AIC) Annual Meeting in Houston?
In our latest Q&A, we traveled to the New York Museum of Transportation in Rush (Monroe County) where archivist Jim Dierks answered our questions about this volunteer-run organization. In addition to fourteen full size trolley cars, a steam locomotive, and other assorted antique vehicles, the Museum is home to a rich archive of photographs, maps, and other historic documents of Upstate New York’s transportation history.
This year's New York Archives Conference (NYAC) annual meeting will be held June 6th-8th at the University of Albany, SUNY.

Presentation topics include collections for historically marginalized groups, rights statements for online collections, born digital records, preparing archives students for life outside of the classroom, and more.
For our latest chat, we reached out to the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse. DHPSNY staff had a wonderful visit there in early 2017 when the Museum hosted one of our Essential Policies and Procedures workshops, and we’ve since wanted to dig deeper into the Museum’s history and collections. Ashley Maready, Curator of Collections & Exhibitions, and Amie Flanigan, Project Archivist, teamed up to answer our questions.
