ACT 210: Managing Maps and Plans Workshop
This workshop assists organizations having problems dealing with large-format records like maps and architectural plans. The storage and retrieval of these records is often less than perfect, even though many of these records have long retention periods and are essential to the running of the organization. The workshop will also discuss modern electronic systems (GIS and CADD) that produce maps and plans, and will touch on preservation issues related to them. This workshop is typically offered in the spring.
