In 2017, New York University Libraries began a three-year project to survey the archival holdings of NYU Special Collections’ repositories in preparation for a major renovation and reorganization. In this webinar, an archivist, a preservationist, and a curator will share the results of the project, completed in January 2020, discussing what was learned about past practices and how assessment data can inform future collection development decisions, collection management activities, and preservation priorities.
This webinar will be of interest to archivists, curators, preservation professionals, collection managers interested in assessment and holistic approaches to archival work, and administrators with responsibility for archives and special collections programs.
The conference will be held in February 22-25, 2021, through online. The conference is a continuation of the NFAIS Annual Conference. The NISO Plus Conference is a place where publishers, vendors, librarians, archivists, product managers, metadata specialists, and electronic resource managers come together to solve existing problems and have conversations that prevent future problems from ever occurring.Event Date: February 22-25, 2021
