What to keep and where to put it! (Records management 101 for archivists)
Have you wanted to clean your filing cabinets, but the job was too daunting? Have you accumulated files and stuck them in piles, boxes, or shared drives just to have them out of sight? You are not alone! We tend to keep too many records. The AMA is offering a unique webinar series which will help you better understand what records are to be kept, which ones are meant to be transferred to an archive or a records storage facility and which one could be destroyed. This series will provide an overview of basic records management principles, which will help you get started in managing your records.
Carole Pelchat, Archivist, and Information Security Officer from the Université de Saint-Boniface will lead this 4-part Webinar series. Each Webinar will last approx. 60 minutes.
This webinar series is for those managing archives. This series will not be recorded.
Dates: November 2, 9, 16, and 23, 2021
Time: 11:30am to 12:30pm Central Time
Cost: $20 per participant. Please register by October 31st at the AMA website.
