Course Description (1 day, .75 CEUs, 5 ARCs)

You’re involved in a variety of projects every day, from small (such as developing a new procedures manual) to large (such as digitizing a collection). But because project management methodologies aren’t automatically included in formal educationor many archival education programsyou may not have acquired the basic knowledge and tools necessary for managing successful projects. Here’s your chance!

Upon completion of this course you'll be able to: 

  • Describe the project life cycle from initiation to completion;

  • Utilize effective project management tools and techniques;

  • Evaluate project outcomes and disseminate project information; and

  • Demonstrate how positive personnel management adds to a successful project. 

Who should attend?
This is an introductory workshop that can also be taken as a refresher course on project management. Project team members who want to become more active in and achieve a better understanding of the workings of their own projects also are welcome.

Knowledge assumed for this course: A basic understanding of archives.

Attendance is limited to 35.
