Workshop 1: DAS course "Basic Electronic Records"

Increasingly, archival records are created in electronic formats. As a result, archives of all types need to be responsible for the preservation of electronic records. After a review of the fundamental principles of archival appraisal and appraisal policies, you’ll be introduced to the unique issues that need to be addressed when appraising electronic records.”

Workshop 2: Creating and Funding Preservation Projects To Enhance Collection Care by Gary Menges, Librarian Emeritus, University of Washington (UW)

Do you want to get a preservation grant to take care of your collections? Many institutions have used grant-funded projects to enhance the level of care they can provide for their collections, and sometimes even to jump start their preservation programs. “Creating and Funding Preservation Projects to Enhance Collection Care” is a one-day workshop that begins with identifying and setting priorities among collection needs. With a clear sense of needs, the second part of the workshop reviews sources of grant funding available to your institution. The third part of the workshop addresses the key preservation questions asked on grant applications – participants answer the questions on behalf of their institutions, building the elements of a proposal for their own collection. The workshop emphasizes working collaboratively with colleagues to develop and receive feedback on project proposals. When possible, TWO attendees from an institution should attend so they can work together on project development.

By the end of the workshop day, participants will have:

  • Outlined a preservation project proposal specific to their institution
  • Identified possible funding sources
  • Tested their ideas with other workshop participants
