Fundamentals of Project Management for Archivists

SAA  |  arrangement & description certificate program 

Spring 2017 meeting  |  Thursday, March 23, 2017

Instructor: Rosemary Pleva Flynn, CA, University of North Dakota

Description: You’re involved in a variety of projects every day, from small projects such as developing a new procedures manual to large projects such as digitizing a collection. But because project management methodologies aren’t automatically included in formal education or many archival education programs, you’ll want to take advantage of this course to acquire the basic knowledge and tools necessary for managing successful projects.

Learning outcomes:
Understand the project life cycle from initiation to completion;
Utilize effective project management tools and techniques;
Evaluate project outcomes and disseminate project information; and
Demonstrate how positive personnel management adds to a successful project.

Who should attend? This introductory course can be taken as a refresher course on project management. Project team members who want to become more active in—and achieve a better understanding of the workings of—individual projects are also welcome.

Location: The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis | 35 Scudder Avenue, Hyannis, MA 02601

Funding for Archives Work

Spring 2017 meeting  |  Thursday, March 23, 2017

Instructor: Kathleen Williams, National Historical Publication & Records Commission

Description: This grants workshop will provide attendees with a detailed look to the competitive archival grant programs at the National Archives and Records Administration, which are made through the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The primary emphasis of this workshop will be on the Access to Historical Records grant program. Executive Director Williams will give participants an understanding of the grant application process, including the components of a good project summary, narrative, budget, and supplemental materials. The instructor also will discuss the review process, the response phase, and Commission recommendations. Attendees will have the opportunity to read and comment on two sample applications as part of the peer review process. They also will learn general tips that successful applicants have used to strengthen their applications.

The workshop also will offer attendees the opportunity to start designing their own project and application package: defining project scope, devising a budget, developing a work plan, and preparing an application.

Born Digital Access Bootcamp: A Collaborative Learning Forum

Spring 2017 meeting  |  Thursday, March 23, 2017

Facilitators: Alison Clemens, Yale University & Jessica Farrell, Harvard University

Description: This workshop will focus on building strategies to providing access to born-digital material.

Designed as an opportunity for practitioners and beginners to learn from one another, the workshop will take a collaborative approach with a morning of group discussions on relevant topics guided by workshop facilitators, following by a hands-on afternoon with demonstrations of born-digital access systems and breakout discussion sessions.

Topics will be selected through surveying workshop participants and through forum discussion, but will ultimately address how policies, copyright/risk assessment, user needs, reference interactions, processing workflows, donor relations, advocacy, and other archival functions affect how, when, and what we provide access to, with an emphasis on user-driven access throughout.

Laptops or mobile devices for collaborative document editing would be useful, but it not required for this workshop.

Location: The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis | 35 Scudder Avenue, Hyannis, MA 02601
