Saturday, November 9

MW1: Teaching and Presenting about Archives
To build collaboration and outreach, archivists often need to present about archives to supervisors, external stakeholders, educators, and students. In particular, archivists may need to explain archival concepts to those who have no background in the field. This workshop will help you practice and refine ways to do just that and will provide techniques to deliver content in an engaging fashion for those with a variety of learning styles. The first part of the workshop will deal with presentations to stakeholders outside the library; the second will deal with pedagogical approaches for working with students.

MW3: After the Event: Response, Stabilization, and Salvage of Photographic Collections
Photographic materials have complex structures, specialized needs, and inherent preservation vulnerabilities; salvaging these materials safely after a disaster incident can sometimes be more challenging than salvaging collections that are primarily paper.  This workshop will address disaster response with a focus on photographic collections.  Presenters will share practical procedures for efficient initial response and stabilization of a disaster scene and will give specific guidelines on salvaging and caring for photographs following a disaster. The session will conclude with a brief, hands-on exercise in which participants will have a chance to witness and practice simulated salvage of photographic materials.

MW4: Fanning your Flame: the Archivist as an Academic
If an article is published, but no one is aware of it, does it truly exist? More and more, academics are required to prove the impact of their work. Depending on the discipline and the level of support that the academic receives, this can be a tall order. Publication is just the start of the work that needs to be done to raise the profile of a piece. This workshop will begin with the basics of scholarly impact and help attendees acquire skills and identify the tools that are available to help them promote their papers and capture the effect of the scholarship.
