Since 2013, the Oral History Association Metadata Task Force (MTF) has developed tools for archivists and other practitioners to describe oral histories in their collections and to make informed metadata choices for legacy and new projects. In a DHPSNY webinar, the MTF guided attendees through their metadata assessment toolkit, a process meant to help both new projects set up quickly with descriptive rigor, and offer longstanding projects a structured way to address missing pieces to their metadata puzzles.

Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York (DHPSNY) is a unique program in both its structure and its services, so it comes as no surprise that we often get asked about DHPSNY and the assistance we provide to New York State organizations. DHPSNY is a joint program of the New York State Library and New York State Archives, which are overseen by the NYS Office of Cultural Education. The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts in Philadelphia was selected to deliver DHPSNY services on their behalf.
