Accessioning and Ingest of Electronic Records [DAS] - July 18

Seattle, WA - Register here<http://forums.archivists.org/t/744442/3271491/3387/2/>

Perhaps your institution has found itself in a situation where a prominent donor has offered a trove of significant Office documents and digital photographs stored on her hard drive; or, an important department is ready to transfer records of long-term value from a file server to the archives; or, a professor drops off an external hard drive and DVDs with video footage from a symposium featuring nationally recognized participants....

If you were unprepared or unsure of how to handle such a donation, this one-day course will introduce you to basic policies, resources, and procedures that will enable your institution to successfully accession and ingest common born-digital materials (Office documents, PDFs, images, audio, video, and email).

Archives Overview - October 24

Portland, OR - Register here<http://forums.archivists.org/t/744442/3271491/3388/3/>

Are you working in a small public library, archives, or historical society? Do you have historical records that you don't quite know what to do with? In this workshop you'll get an overview of basic archival theory, functions, and practices that protect the integrity of historical records. The workshop will give you a basis for further learning.

In this workshop you will:

  1.  Learn archives and historical records terminology, and get an overview of the body of knowledge needed, ethical responsibilities, and resources for additional information;
  2.  Hear about core policy statements, professional standards, and best practices;
  3.  Get tools for control of your collections;
  4.  Find out about basic preservation steps you can implement;
  5.  Learn the basics of arrangement and description; and,
  6.  Walk away knowing what your next steps should be.

Who should attend? Librarians, museum staff, administrators, archivists, and volunteers in small repositories with historical records and without archives training.

This announcement is sent to you courtesy of the Society of American Archivists.
