Here at the State Archives, we’re firm believers in collaborating with our colleagues around the state and in the larger archives community. This means that we participate in digital initiatives with other large repositories, attend conferences, and provide assistance to smaller repositories through our Archives 101 workshops.
Melanie and Libby traveled to Prescott last week to deliver a workshop to a full audience, many of whom had traveled from the far reaches of the State. The workshop had a standby list of at least 10 people! We hope to offer another workshop in the Fall here in Phoenix, but interested people should stay tuned on our events registration website.
Meanwhile, we’re gearing up for the annual Society of Southwest Archivists/Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists held later this week at the Mesa Marriott Convention Center. Melanie and Libby will both be speaking at the conference, and we’re all really looking forward to learning about new projects and getting ideas from our colleagues. To learn more about the conference, visit the SSA Annual Meeting website!
