The Collection Management Section will be hosting a webinar this spring on the theme of digital records and collection management, and we are actively seeking presenters!
Do you have clever workflows for managing electronic (or hybrid) records and collections? What information are you tracking, and what tools are you using? What are some of the challenges or hurdles that you’ve encountered in implementing a system for managing electronic records? How do you distinguish between born-digital and digitized records (or do you)? How do you distinguish between donor-digitized materials and originals in a collection management system? If any of this sounds like something you are excited to present about, we would love to hear from you!
We are looking for speakers to share their experience in a 10-15 minute virtual presentation planned tentatively for March or April, date TBD based on presenters’ availability. We would love to have diverse presenters and institutions represented: speakers from small institutions, HBCUs, and community archives are encouraged to apply.
If you’re interested in presenting, please send a brief proposal to Rita Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31st. Please feel free to email with any questions!
