Adventures in Museum Archives

  • Wednesday, September 25, 2024
  • 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

While most museums hold important archival materials, those responsible for these collections, especially in small and midsized museums, may not have access to “museum-friendly” training for their organization, care and access. This workshop, led by professional archivists who have experience working with museums, will provide introductions to key areas of archival practice as they pertain to museum collections, through a series of brief presentations, informal Q-and-A, hands-on activities, and resource materials.
