Social Media for Archives Webinar

Social media offers amazing opportunities for archives and archivists to engage with the wider world in exciting (and occasionally surprising) new ways. Just as we have learned to embrace digital space as an extension of physical space, we can think of social media as a way to expand connections not only to our users but to other institutions and professionals as well. Social media also happens to be a lot of fun and lends itself well to learning-by-doing; the biggest challenge is often getting started!

The CCA Webinar on Social Media for Archives will introduce several social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, and the nebulous and hilariously-named “Blogosphere”) as well as strategies and approaches to using these platforms in an archival context. Examples of heritage institutions and individuals that are currently making good use of social media will be included — this is an area where we can learn a lot from our colleagues.

Instructor: Myron Groover
Myron is Archives and Rare Books Librarian at McMaster University. He has made extensive use of social media in numerous advocacy efforts (and for his own edification and delight). Prior to his current job, he was often heard to say that “Twitter IS my professional development budget”.

Archival Appraisal Webinar

Archival appraisal is the foundation for building collections of long-term historical value. Careful selection of material for permanent retention ensures that institutional resources support only those holdings that meet acquisition criteria and contribute to the documentary heritage. Decisions leading to what is kept have immense consequences for how histories are written, and lie at the heart of archival professional practice.

The Canadian Council of Archives webinar on Archival Appraisal will provide an introduction to appraisal strategies and the elements of an archival appraisal report. As archivists, our decisions are informed by the principles and tools of current practice. The archival appraisal report not only records what informed the selection process, but also leaves an essential trace of what was eliminated so that future generations of researchers can judge those decisions. This webinar also compliments the content of the NAAB Bootcamp.

Instructor: Theresa Rowat
Working over 30 years in heritage and culture, Theresa brings specialized expertise in archival collections with a focus on visual and media holdings.

NAAB Bootcamp (Monetary Appraisal)

Monetary appraisal is a key element of archival donor relations and collections development, but how is monetary appraisal done? How should your institution prepare for monetary appraisal of a fonds/collection? How is fair market value determined when archival materials are unique by definition, and few sales records are available from auctions, used book stores, or price guides?

NAAB appraisers provide a professional opinion of value for various reasons. The NAAB Bootcamp has been designed specifically for highly motivated people seeking: to learn more about monetary appraisal; to help institutions acquire donations of cultural property as gifts in kind; and to work effectively with donors. Please join us, from the comfort of your own office or boardroom, to learn the essentials of monetary appraisal. This webinar series offers a combination of theory, practical skills and tools shared by an experienced NAAB appraiser. You will also take an active part in an exercise using appraisal examples. Background readings and a practical exercise are provided for the NAAB Bootcamp.

We are looking forward to introducing you to the world of monetary appraisal!

Preserve and Protect: Archives Security Webinar

Has a researcher ever walked out of your institution with a document in their pocket?
What measures can you take to protect your records with increasingly limited human and financial resources?

Most archives and special collections libraries are experiencing operational challenges, and as a result the physical security of collections against theft or vandalism can become a troublesome concern. Security is a fundamental, integral component of archival management that is in part tied to appraisal, arrangement and description, reference and preservation. Protection of records include: deterrents to theft; identification of missing items; environmental control; protection from fire, flood and other disasters; safe exhibition and loan procedures; and insurance for valuable items.

The Canadian Council of Archives webinar on Archival Security will provide an introduction to risk assessment, policies and procedures to minimize risks and prevent loss of records, security training for staff, security systems and equipment and crisis management.

Instructor: Iona McCraith
Iona is the AAO Archives Advisor (since May 2013) and since 1999 has also maintained a private practice as a preservation consultant and archival materials conservator.
