    Caring for Historical Records

    Historic Northampton. Monday August 24, 9am-4pm


    Instructor: Anne Ostendarp, Consulting and Project Archivist

    Description:  This workshop is for those responsible for the care of historical records or those interested in developing a historical records collection. It is especially useful for staff and volunteers working in libraries, museums, historical societies,  or municipal governments who have responsibility for archival materials but no formal training in archival practice. Through a combination of lecture, group discussion, and exercises, participants will get an overview of the fundamentals of archival organization, including the basic principles and practices of identification, acquisition, preservation, arrangement and description of historical records. The topics of access, reference and outreach will also be explored. This workshop will help participants develop policies, forms, and procedures to manage archival collections

    NEA thanks University Products, Inc. for its support of this workshop.

    Directions/parking: http://www.historicnorthampton.org/visit.html

    Lunch on your own. Historic Northampton is closed to the public on Mondays; information will be sent to attendees prior to the workshop for accessing the workshop location.

    In the 2015 NEA membership survey, one-third of NEA members indicated a desire to gain skills and expertise necessary to effectively manage, preserve, and provide access to their audiovisual collections. We’re excited to offer a day-long workshop focusing on the basics of moving image and recorded sound collections, taught by staff from the WGBH Media Library and Archives and Harvard Library’s Weissman Preservation Center. This workshop will cover the following topics: identification of analog and digital formats, basic care and handling, storage of analog and digital AV collections, inventorying analog collections, metadata for audiovisual materials, digitization best practices, characteristics of digital audiovisual files, rights and access, and digital repositories. Attendees will leave the workshop with confidence, knowledge and resources to ensure the preservation and access of the cultural heritage documented in their audiovisual collections.
