Community History Collections: Managing and Developing Your Resources - Webinar (06/09/22)

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.

We'll talk about how to get started - groups to connect with, tips for organizing and prioritizing projects, strategies and tips for digitization of photographs, textual documents, and movies (including how to create more accessible content), curation and content plans, archival and conservation of original source materials, outreach and community involvement, grant funding, and more! 

A resource sheet, resource description and content template as a Google Docs and an online form template for submissions via the web, and instructions for scanning will be provided.  

Audience: All staff interested in starting or working with community history projects; topics covered will also be of interest to those working with digital archives, special collections, metadata, and scholarly communications projects.!
