ARC 102: Organizing Your Historical Records Workshop

Making government historical records available to the public involves more than just dragging them out of storage. Researchers need to know something about the records - how they were created, who created them, how they are organized, and what kind of information they contain. This workshop will present the basic steps for organizing your historical government records and making them useful to the wide variety of potential researchers who might benefit from their contents. This workshop is typically offered in the fall.
