Event description

Description

Join the West Virginia Association of Museums, and Wheeling archivist Laura Carroll at the Ohio County Public Library for a full day workshop. WVAM Members may attend for $10.00 and non-members for $20.00. The cost of attendance includes lunch, and materials needed for the workshop.
Are you working in a small house museum, historical society or library? Do you have family papers, organizational records or photographs that you don’t know what to do with? This workshop will provide an introduction to archival principles, standards, and practices and provide the tools for better intellectual and physical control of your collections. Topics include the fundamentals of archival appraisal, acquisition, arrangement and description, access, digitization, and outreach. The workshop will use a hybrid approach that will include both lecture and hands-­on exercises with the primary goal of providing a basic grounding in archival management which will empower participants to feel more comfortable working with archival materials in their repository.
