Archives & Special Collections at the UAA/APU Consortium Library is sponsoring a series of electronic records trainings from the Society of American Archivists (SAA), June 16-20. The week is being offered as an intensive (price break for the week if you attend all) but you're also welcome to sign up for individual elements.
Early bird registration rates are good through June 1st. Full details on the course schedule, intended audience, intended level, and registration costs can be accessed here:http://www.consortiumlibrary.org/blogs/archives/2014/02/12/doyouknowwhereyourelectronicrecordsare/
We’ve also arranged for dorm space for those of you who may have to travel here for these workshops and are trying to do so on a limited budget. For non-Alaskans, UAA's Conference Services tells me they'll allow dorm reservations for up to a week before and a week after, if you're thinking of finally doing that AK trip, and can use Anchorage as a base. More details via that link.
Please share widely!

These courses are all part of SAA’s coursework toward the Digital Archives Specialist credential. You do not have to be pursuing the DAS credential to take any or all of these courses. If you are interested in pursuing the credential, more information can be found through the link. We also hope to do another intensive in June 2015 so those of us Alaskans pursuing the credential can do all of it relatively locally.
