Making history: Preserving your program’s legacy

How your work is remembered depends on you!

This workshop will provide guidance to County employees on steps you can take now to preserve County history.  Learn how you can document County programs to help future researchers make the most of records that are transferred to the Archives.

The workshop will be held Friday, October 28, 2016 from 2 to 3 p.m. It will be in the Chinook Building, room 126. Click here for more information and to register.

Topics will include using retention schedules to determine archival and potentially archival value, appraisals, organizing records for access, documenting significant events and program history, and handling and storing records for long-term preservation and use.  We will also touch on ideas for exhibits and other ways to highlight your program’s legacy.
