    Approaching Transition and Grief in Acquisitions Work 

    Heather mumford, carolyn hayes, and joan ilacqua  |  harvard medical school  

    Tuesday, april 30, 2019, 2-3 pm

    Archival acquisitions often occur at times of difficult transition. A holistic understanding of a donor’s transition will aid archivists and other staff with acquisitions responsibilities in managing successful donor interactions. Techniques to handle difficult situations will lead to better outcomes for archivists and stewards of cultural heritage.

    For the last three years, Mumford, Hayes and Ilacqua have explored the topics of transition, grief, and loss through interviews with professionals including palliative care workers, ombudspersons, and members of the clergy, as well as extensive research on medical perspectives of loss and grief.

    The webinar is free for NEA members.
