Society of Indiana Archivists To Hold Fall Workshop In Indianapolis

The Society of Indiana Archivists will hold their Fall Workshop on Friday, October 4 from 9 am to 4 pm at the Indiana State Museum (650 W. Washington St., Indianapolis IN 46204). The theme of the workshop is "Artifacts for Archivists: Tricks of the Trade from Museum Professionals." Gaby Kienitz, head conservator of the Indiana State Museum, and Sally Childs-Helton, Butler University archivist, will unravel the mysteries of how to care for and make accessible the kinds of artifacts that almost every cultural repository contains. They will cover cleaning, storing, exhibiting, accessioning, cataloging and more. The workshop will also include a tour of the Indiana State Museum stacks and conservation lab.

Registration for the workshop is $35 for SIA members, $45 for non-members. The workshop is limited to 60 people and lunch is on your own. Participants may be eligible for ACA credits and LEUs. To register, or for more information, see
