Starting a Local History/Community Project - Webinar (10/22/21)

SnackSized Learning! 


Have you thought about how your library can partner with local community groups to archive & share community history? Not only are local history projects a great outreach opportunity, but they also help us archive important pieces of our cultural history.

In this 1 hour lunch n' learn, we'll talk about how to get started - groups to connect with, tips for organizing and prioritizing projects, making digitization and content plans, tips for metadata collection (especially by volunteers or noncatalogers), rights issues/questions, as well as a brief overview of technology.

A resource sheet and instructions for scanning will be provided. This webinar is aimed at all library audiences.
