What You Will Learn

There will be extensive  attendee participation, during which  attendees  will  examine samples of  records,  catalog  descriptions  of  records series, and discuss  how to  develop  research  strategies. The session will also include an overview of  how archivists are beginning to use technology to help  solve some of  these  problems, such as scanning records  to facilitate remote access and creating databases to find  records.
Who Should Attend
