This workshop is designed for small organizations that struggle with how to preserve and organize archival materials in their collections. The speaker will discuss proper storage and handling of collections, basic arrangement techniques, and affordable solutions for supplies and enclosures. The session will also address how to organize collections materials in a manner that makes them accessible to researchers, students, and members of the general public. Presented by Meghan Courtney, Wayne State University.
For in-person attendees, refreshments will be available. Lunch is on your own. Materials are included with your registration. Any handouts from the presenter will be sent to remote attendees after the workshop.
