The Society of Georgia Archivists’ Education Committee is pleased to present Fundamentals of Archives Preservation on Thursday, August 9th, from 9 AM to 4 PM, at the Georgia Archives at Morrow. This workshop will provide an introduction to the history and practice of preserving paper, photographic materials, sound recordings, audio/video, and motion picture film. Through case studies and a hands-on component, participants will gain practical knowledge of the preservation issues of a variety of materials.

This course is geared toward those who already have an understanding of professional archival practices. The agenda is similar to the preservation session offered annually as part of the Georgia Archives Institute and would be both beneficial to those beginning their career in archives and an excellent refresher for those looking to keep their skills up-to-date.

Christine Wiseman, Head of the Digital Services Department of the Robert W. Woodruff Library at the Atlanta University Center, and Tina Seetoo, Archives & Donor Relations Associate at the Delta Air Lines Archives at the Delta Flight Museum, will serve as co-instructors. 

Due to the nature of the course, attendance is limited to 20 participants. Registration ends Friday, August 3rd.
