The Society of Indiana Archivists and the State Historical Records Advisory Board of Indiana (SHRAB) will hold their Fall Workshop on Friday, October 7 from 9 am to 4:30 pm at the DePauw University Archives in Greencastle, Indiana. The theme of the workshop is "Nuts and Bolts: Archives Basics," and it is geared towards "accidental archivists" or new archivists - those who perhaps have been assigned archives work and are not sure what to do now. In the morning session, everyone will have a chance to work with actual collections in small groups. There will be plenty of opportunities to get your questions answered and discuss best practices. The afternoon will be devoted to management issues that might surprise you: creating a finding aid to aid users in discovering the collection, working with patrons, working with donors, digitizing your first collection, and marketing.
Registration is $30 for SIA members, $40 for non-members. To register, or for more information, visit http://www.inarchivists.org/workshops/files/2011FallWorkshop.php
