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.
Thanks to everyone who attended both presentations of our first webinar, Introducing DHPSNY. For those who missed it, we're making all of the material available for download. Due to technical difficulties with our September 22 presentation, we are only making available the September 15 recording.
DHPSNY's webinar series continues Thursday, October 6 at 10 AM with Funding For Collections Care. Join Lee Price, Director of Development at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts, as he offers guidance on how to be competitive in the race for public and private funding.
Due to overwhelming interest and enrollment in the first installment of our webinar series, we've added a second presentation of Introducing DHPSNY on Thursday, September 22, at 11 AM. There are still spots left for both dates, so please register for the time that works best for you. If you can't make either presentation, remember that all webinars will be recorded and archived for download from DHPSNY’s Resources page.
DHPSNY is excited to announce the first in our series of instructional webinars. Join us Thursday, September 15, at 2 PM for Introducing DHPSNY, an overview of the Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York initiative.
Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York (DHPSNY) is a statewide program established to support the vast network of non-government, unique library and archival repositories that safeguard New York’s historical records. With the launch of DHPSNY’s website, dhpsny.org, qualifying New York organizations can apply for free training and services, including archival needs assessments, preservation and conservation surveys, and strategic planning guidance. Applications are now available, and recipients of DHPSNY’s planning and assessment services will be selected by a competitive review process led by an advisory committee of library, archives, and conservation professionals.
