As collection caretakers, we often have to balance the primary goals of care and access. Setting safe boundaries for physical access to collections can be accomplished by providing consistent handling procedures for anyone using collection materials. In this webinar, DHPSNY Preservation Specialist Amanda Murray will discuss writing handling guidelines, training both staff and researchers on how to properly handle materials, determining specific guidelines for particularly fragile materials, and housing considerations for heavily used materials.

Whether your relocation project requires moving objects within your building, to temporary storage, or to a new institution; moving archival collections can be a big undertaking for institutions. In 2017, a team from the New York State Archives moved roughly 1500 cubic feet of civil court records from the New York County Clerk's Office in New York City to the New York State Archives in Albany. The collection included 1,100 boxes of records, around 900 volumes that were not in boxes, and about 500 rolls of microfilm to be packed and moved. In this webinar, Maria Holden, former Director of Archival Services at the New York State Archives, will share her experience with this major moving project, as well as tips and tricks for how to plan your own move. Aside from the physical move, other considerations that may need to be taken into account when relocating collections, including cost, data collection, intellectual control, and contingency planning will also be discussed.
