Training for records managers


ADAH staff conducting records training workshop


The National Historical Publications and Records Commission staff will hold three webinars to answer questions about its Documenting Democracy: Access to Historical Records grants. In brief, the Commission developed this category to offer institutions flexibility as they designed programs to promote the preservation and use of the nation's most valuable archival resources. As a result, the Commission seeks proposals for projects that support one or a combination of the following activities: establishing new archives programs, processing and cataloging collections at the basic or detailed level, converting existing archival finding aids to new online formats, surveying and accessioning, and collection development.


The full announcement is available on their website: http://www.archives.gov/nhprc/announcement/access.html


Applications are due on Thursday, 4 October 2012.


NHPRC staff will review drafts that are submitted by Monday, 8 August 2012.
