Understanding Archives: An Introduction to Archival Basics 

While proper archival procedures help ensure safe and effective management of collections, the individuals who care for collections also play a key role. However, volunteers, historians, and other professionals at collecting institutions may find themselves in the position of "archivist" without formal training in the profession. Topics covered during this workshop will include the fundamentals of archival appraisal, acquisition, and access; proper storage materials; and the most common preservation problems found within paper-based archival collections. This workshop will also touch briefly on processing, arrangement, and description.

This workshop will be presented in five different locations.
