Caring for Architectural Records

Brown bag webinar

Registration deadline: January 9, 2019
Maximum class size: 50
Instructor: Claire Grund, Associate Conservator, NEDCC
Location: Live Webinar

Oversized items proliferate in historic collections, as well as in the records of municipal and business organizations. They are found rolled in boxes, loose in drawers, and folded in files. The size of these records pose challenges to handling and storage, and the materials and processes used in various modes of production complicate preservation. This webinar will present characteristics of oversized architectural records, address both ideal and practical solutions for storage, and prepare you for proper care and handling so that these materials in your collection remain usable for as long as possible.

In Perpetuity: Tips for Municipal Clerks & Government Agencies

Brown bag webinar

Maximum class size: 50
Instructor: Becky Geller, Preservation Specialist, NEDCC
Location: Live Webinar

Town clerks and other municipal record holders maintain a balance between caring for historic records and everyday responsibilities to the community.

When town clerks get elected, they become the caretakers of historic ledgers and documents; with a little preservation planning and collections care, steps can be taken to protect these historical documents and provide better access to them. The methods and goals discussed in this webinar will help municipal record keepers care for their collections, with a nod to the common formats found in town halls across the country.Town clerks and other municipal record holders maintain a balance between caring for historic records and everyday responsibilities to the community.

Creating Long-lasting Digital Prints

Live online webinar

Registration deadline: May 13, 2019
Maximum class size: 50
Instructor: Monique Fischer, Senior Photograph Conservator, NEDCC
Location: Live Webinar

Image files represent an increasingly large part of our cultural heritage, our personal memory, and our professional work, and for photographers and artists they may represent an entire body of work. These files can be surprisingly transient, and may be unintentionally lost or corrupted. Sometimes the safest backup is a hard copy, but color prints made from digital files are not always preservation-quality. To protect these valued images, you need to understand the materials employed and control storage conditions. 

Participants in this webinar will develop an understanding of the three most important factors that affect the life of a digital print: the quality of materials used such as the colorant (dye vs. pigment) and paper; the way these materials work in combination with each other; and the storage and display of the resultant prints.

Maximum class size: 50
Instructor: Sean Ferguson, Preservation Specialist, NEDCC
Location: Live Webinar

Cultural heritage organizations often look to their collections to create public exhibitions, but putting the spotlight on rare books and documents is inherently at odds with preservation.  Exhibits, though, provide a powerful avenue for outreach and also present opportunities for collection advocacy. Preparing collections for safe exhibition ensures that these materials remain accessible into the future. This webinar will help you understand the risks of exhibition so that you can develop policies and guidelines to mitigate those risks. Selection for exhibition will be covered, along with space considerations, safe handling, and display methods.

AMIA Continuing Education: Processing of Oral Histories

Maximum class size: 50
Instructor: Mary Larson, Associate Dean for Special Collections, Oklahoma State University Library, and Sarah Milligan, Associate Professor and Head of the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program, Oklahoma State University
Location: On Demand

Oral histories, which are nearly ubiquitous in archival and cultural heritage collections, capture first-hand accounts of their subjects and are particularly valuable resources as they often record the histories and memories of underrepresented people and groups. However, oral history interviews may be maintained on a variety of media formats (both analog and digital), which can make them daunting to care for. This 90-minute webinar will offer guidance to those archivists charged with maintaining these important recordings and will present a workflow—from beginning to end—for how best to process, preserve, and make accessible oral history materials. The webinar will also introduce some important concepts that are particular to oral history collections, including conversations on ethical considerations, the use of outside vendors, and the role of transcription and index tagging. This is a beginner-level webinar and previous experience processing oral history and/or audiovisual collections is not required. The course will be taught by Mary Larson, Associate Dean for Special Collections at Oklahoma State University Library and former President of the Oral History Association and Sarah Milligan Associate Professor and Head of the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program at Oklahoma State University.

Location: On Demand

Many audiovisual and moving image collections are at risk due to their material instability and the ever-growing issue of technological obsolescence. While reformatting is a valuable tool for both preservation and access, preserving the original objects nevertheless remains important.  Perhaps the most important action that archivists can take to guarantee the long-term preservation of audiovisual objects is to ensure that they are held in the proper storage conditions. This webinar provides an introduction and overview of best storage practices. It will identify appropriate packing and storage containers and include a detailed discussion of proper environmental standards. Formats covered during the webinar will include magnetic tape, motion picture film, and photographs.
