Last week, we presented the final two sessions of our summer Photo Preservation workshop series at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown (Chautauqua County) and the George Eastman Museum in Rochester (Monroe County, pictured). Ready or not, it's time to start looking ahead to the fall! Starting in October, we'll present a new series on Mold in five convenient locations throughout the State. Each location will host morning and afternoon sessions of the same program. Register today for one of these ten sessions.

This year's New York Archives Conference (NYAC) annual meeting will be held June 6th-8th at the University of Albany, SUNY.

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.
