Maintaining programs for managing records and archives can involve a myriad of short and long-term projects undertaken with or without grant funds. Common projects include inventories, digitization to improve access, preserve originals or create an online exhibit, and arrangement and description of archival records.
Project management and planning is essential for projects of any size and when preparing an application if a grant is involved. For a good outcome, projects should begin with a well-defined plan and assign a project manager to oversee the work and anticipate and address any issues that may arise to ensure project goals are accomplished on time and within an established budget.
This joint DHPSNY and NYSA webinar will provide key considerations for planning and managing records management and archives projects.
