DHPSNY offers a variety of educational programs and services to qualifying New York institutions. Presented free of charge throughout the state, DHPSNY’s programs address the needs of professionals and volunteers responsible for the care and handling of historical records. DHPSNY’s workshops and webinars discuss emerging issues and best practices, with content scaled to apply to small- and medium-sized organizations with limited resources.



DHPSNY’s workshops promote interactive learning, networking, and collaboration. Presented throughout the state, workshops emphasize hands-on learning exercises and provide supplemental resources. View the schedule of upcoming workshops.


DHPSNY’s webinar series is a great alternative to face-to-face workshops. Webinar topics are more narrowly focused, with more opportunities for questions and responses. Webinars are recorded, archived, and made available for download from DHPSNY’s Resources page. View the schedule of upcoming webinars.
