Course Description (2 days, 1.5 CEUs, 10 ARCs)

Although they have much in common with librarians, records managers, and museum staff, archivists must use different practices to protect the integrity of historical records. A strong archives program puts into practice long-standing archival principles. What are those principles and how do you implement them? This workshop provides an overview of basic archival functions, including appraisal and accessioning, arrangement and description, preservation, and reference.

In this workshop you’ll:

  • Learn archives and historical records terminology and get an overview of the body of knowledge needed, ethical responsibilities, and resources for continuing professional development;

  • Discover the principles of archival organization and functions: provenance, respect de fonds, and original order;

  • Find out about core policy statements, professional standards, and best practices, and learn how to evaluate your current program and determine needed improvements;

  • Develop the knowledge base needed to make choices for balancing access to and preservation of historical records and holdings; and

  • Gain a greater understanding of the role of the archives in fulfilling the mission of the institution.

Who should attend?
Librarians, records managers, museum staff, and administrators who have responsibility for archival records but little or no archives training.

Attendance is limited to 35.
