The Ins, the Outs, and Everything Between
This workshop will walk through the steps from accessioning newspapers through digitizing them and making them accessible to the public. It is designed for everyone who works with newspapers or is thinking about processing a newspaper collection for their museum or archive. The presenter will explain and show with pictures the processes that she uses to accession a newspaper collection.
There will be time at the end of the presentation for questions.
This event will be recorded and the recording will be shared with all registrants, regardless of whether or not they attended.
