WEBINAR: Square Peg, Round Hole: Retrofitting for Records
Archivists & records managers at all levels of government will learn the strategies used by fellow colleagues as they implemented best practices for preservation and access in less-than-ideal circ


Date & Time:
 Thursday, January 4, 2018 | 1PM - 2PM EST
 
Themes:
 Archives | Public Records | Records Storage

Overview: Government records under lock and key, and stacked on jail bunks. A century-old wooden train depot filled with paper, and no fire protection. A former truck repair building shifting under the weight of records. Records on the move to make way for renovations. Ideally, government records would be housed in purpose-built, well-maintained facilities. However, the reality (especially for local governments) is that archives and records are often housed in historic or re-purposed buildings, each with their own charm and challenges. Three local government archivists and records managers from big cities and small towns will share their experiences in addressing issues posed by these types of challenging facilities, finding solutions to improve their unique situation, obtaining resources necessary to implement innovative solutions, and providing access to and care for records during renovation and transition periods. Records managers at all levels of government will benefit from learning about the strategies used by fellow colleagues as they implemented best practices for preservation and access in less-than-ideal circumstances.
