In order to combine resources or services, museums or historical societies might decide to merge or consolidate their charters. Or, due to various causes, an institution may decide to dissolve their charter altogether. Merging, consolidating, and dissolving charters are all actions that require an application process through the Board of Regents. Join Lauren Lyons, Chartering Coordinator at the New York State Museum, to learn more about the differences between consolidating and merging, what these application processes look like, and what the best options are for different circumstances.

Museum Chartering 101: Mergers, Consolidations, and Dissolutions is the second webinar in a series designed to help institutions better understand the processes involved in New York's chartering program.

Archives 101 is a 4-week, asynchronous course intended for individuals who manage cultural collections, with a focus on individuals who are new to working with archives, who may not have had formal archival training, or who are looking to refresh their knowledge of archival management basics. Topics covered in this online course include essential archival policies and procedures; fundamentals of appraisal, acquisitions, and accessioning; basic processing techniques and considerations; and access to collections. 

With a flexible learning environment, this course combines the convenience of on-demand, virtual education with the benefits of interactive learning. Each week, content will be released focusing on a different sub-topic of archives management, and participants will then be able to work through this content at their own pace while interacting with instructors and fellow classmates throughout the week. Each weekly module will include the following:

  • Series of brief, pre-recorded, lectures presented by DHPSNY staff 
  • Mini-quiz checkpoints to test your knowledge 
  • Interactive discussion boards 
  • Comprehensive resource guides

Presenter: Julia Novakovic, Archivist, The Strong National Museum of Play

Endangered media formats such as floppy disks, u-matic tapes, and data tapes pose difficult preservation questions for collecting institutions. These increasingly obsolete media formats are sometimes pushed to the side when organizing and preserving archival collections, simply because we often don't know what to do with them. Join Julia Novakovic, Archivist at The Strong National Museum of Play, as she shares her experience with identifying and caring for endangered media formats. This webinar will also address topics such as developing surveys for media collections, finding reference information on these formats, and determining next steps for what you might want to do once you have these numbers.
