Managing Digital Records in Archives and Special Collections

Instructor: Seth Shaw
Wednesday, May 15 – 9:00 AM-5:00 PM

Registration is now open for the pre-conference workshop Managing Digital Records in Archives and Special Collections. Register soon to get the early bird rate!

Co-sponsored by Society of American Archivists

Registration for this workshop is separate from conference registration. The registration fee is $199 for SAA members registering by March 25. Enrollment is limited to 35 participants.

Get ready to focus on the skills that administrators and managers-those archivists with oversight over their department or the entire archival enterprise of their institution-need to incorporate digital records management into their archives and special collections. We will discuss both the administrative and technical needs to successfully manage archived digital records, allowing you to make thoughtful and convincing arguments to staff and superiors grounded in knowing what it takes.

This course fulfills a Transformational credit for the DAS certificate program.

Non-SAA-members may use the code MDRX25MT to receive a $25 discount off the non-member rate.


Teaching with Primary Sources: Educational Outreach with Project Archaeology

Instructor: Nichole Tramel
Wednesday, May 15 – 9:00 AM-11:30 AM

This workshop is free, but you must sign up when you register for the conference.  Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.

Outreach can be a powerful opportunity for archival institutions to connect with potential users, show off collections, build support for facilities, and demonstrate their relevance to stakeholders. Archivists already have so much on their plates, though, that it can be challenging and time-consuming to design programming for K-16 audiences, graduate students, and life-long learners. Luckily, Project Archaeology is here to help!

Project Archaeology is a national education program that is a partnership between the Bureau of Land Management and Montana State University. We create high-quality, award-winning educational material in addition to offering ongoing professional development and support for educators. We specialize in introducing audiences to material culture analysis and teaching non-experts how to access the past through primary source material. This workshop will add to an archivist or allied professional’s toolkit by offering ready-made lessons from Project Archaeology’s Informal Education Guide. These lessons can be used to highlight aspects of your collection and can be easily adapted for different types of events and learners. With these lessons, you will have everything that you need to engage visitors between the ages of 8 and 80!


Going from Zero to Winning with Grants

Instructor: Rachael Cristine Woody, Rachael Cristine Consulting
Wednesday, May 15
1:00-5:00 PM

Workshop registration fee is $5.50. Enrollment is limited  to 20 participants.

This workshop is for anyone who is a part of under-funded or emerging archives, or has a new program or project to launch. The reality of working in archives is that we often struggle to secure enough funding to function at our full potential. Grant funding is repeatedly sought to fill the gap needed for staff, supplies, and projects. The session will offer a sandbox for constructing competitive grant project ideas, reveal proposal pitfalls, and provide a template for creating a winning grant proposal. Rachael Woody has successfully worked with more than a dozen organizations on grant acquisition and management and has specialized in archives and museum grant writing for more than 10 years. She is the author of a #1 New Release on Amazon, "A Survivor’s Guide to Museum Grant Writing," which teaches professionals of all-levels how to confidently go from zero ideas to a winning proposal.
