Our World is Flat: An Introduction to Managing Archival and Photograph Collections

This workshop, hosted at the Boise City Hall, was designed for museum professionals, beginners and old pros alike, who find themselves struggling to manage paper and photographic materials in their institutions. We encouraged open minds and open hearts to engage with us and each other as we journeyed through the dark passageways of the archival profession. There were two hands-on group projects: processing a manuscript collection and creating a digitization plan.
