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 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.

DHPSNY Dialogues

DHPSNY Dialogues provide the framework and facilitation to further explore the roles of antiracism, diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and justice to inform the policies, practices, and systems of New York’s collecting organizations. These intimate, interactive discussions are a great way to network with like-minded colleagues and are never recorded to enable participants to speak their minds while protecting their privacy. View the schedule of upcoming dialogues.


DHPSNY’s Mentorship Program is designed to create a community that supports those who care for the unique library research materials and archival collections in the state of New York – volunteers, interns, students, as well as new or emerging professionals.
