[padg] Seats Available - Two Upcoming Preservation Classes

Please excuse cross-posting.


Hurry and Register for these upcoming classes from Lyrasis! Seats are still available.



Preserving Oral Histories

Date and Time: 8/4/2009, 2-4 pm

Location: Live Online


As a tool for recording the lives and viewpoints of both common and uncommon people, oral histories have become a vital component of collections in cultural institutions. Unfortunately, librarians, curators, and archivists do not always have control regarding the format or the quality of the oral histories and accompanying material that are sent to our institutions. This class will discuss reformatting and digitization issues as well as appropriate labeling techniques and more.


Hurricane Preparedness

Date and Time: 8/5/2009 with follow-up 8/26 and 9/16

Location: Live Online


This class provides an opportunity for institutions in hurricane-prone areas to examine their level of planning and preparedness, specifically hurricane readiness and response. Having a realistic, functional plan is critical to successful response and recovery. There are steps that institutions can take now (regardless of the size of the staff or the annual budget) that can help guarantee the best possible outcome. Topics will include building preparation, collection considerations, staff readiness, and what to expect if a hurricane strikes your institution.
