In a new initiative to provide cost effective continuing education to our membership, New England Archivists is now offering on-site SAA webinars. We recently had a successful webinar at the Avon Free Public Library in Avon, CT and now we have two more upcoming webinar and networking events planned:
Basics of Managing Electronic Records | Boston, MA | Monday, December 19, 2016
Introduction to Processing Digital Records and Manuscripts | Medford, MA | Friday, January 27, 2017
Join NEA December 19th at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston for our 2nd on-site webinar and networking event. Meet up with colleagues to watch SAA’s webinar, “Basics of Managing Electronic Records: Getting You Started!,” followed by small group discussions of how to apply the tools and techniques presented in the webinar at your own organization. Light refreshments will be provided.
If you are seeking your DAS certification, or just want to enhance your understanding of working with born digital records, this webinar viewing and networking event is an opportunity to explore the topic at a greatly reduced rate. For those attendees who wish to take the exam, information will be provided at the event for you. Each exam costs $35.00, payable by the attendee to SAA.
About the webinar, “Basics of Managing Electronic Records: Getting You Started!”
All archives must address the management of electronic records to some degree, and you may not have the background in electronic records or the confidence to tackle this daunting task! This webinar provides you the basics you need to start solving your electronic records problems. Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to:
1) Identify common preservation formats of electronic records;
2) Describe appraising, accessioning, and preserving electronic records;
3) Begin working with records creators; and
4) Start promoting and continuing your electronic records program.
