Appraisal of Historical Records

This workshop will introduce techniques to identify records that are necessary for adequate documentation of local governments and the communities they serve. Identifying records which have enduring value is one of the most challenging tasks of an archival program.

Through lectures, cases studies, and exercises, participants will explore the current methodology for appraising records, learn how to use State Archives schedules in identifying archival records, and discuss how to apply the techniques to their own local governments' records.

Workshop Type: Classroom Training
Intended Audience: Historical Records Repositories, Local Governments, State Agencies
