Does this sound familiar? Your institution’s records are relegated to boxes in a back room, basement or or simply tossed without review. Join us on Thursday, March 14th 2019, from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM as we host Nadia Dixson, the Somerville City Archivist, as she presents, “How Did We Get Here: Maintaining Records for Long Term Institutional Memory.” Avoid costly mistakes, and even see a return on investment, by learning how to identify, preserve, and maintain appropriate historic records. This webinar introduces practical information and tools necessary to identify records of enduring value and start an archives program that will benefit your institution and preserve institutional memory.
Upon completing this webinar, you’ll be:
• Introduced to the essential elements of an archives/records management program
• Learn about appropriate goals for your institution’s archives program
• Learn about the value of including various types of records in an online archive
• Learn how one city solved the problem of making archival records available for easy access

This webinar is free and open to anyone interested, but advance registration is required. Please register at this link:
