OCLC Works in Progress Webinar: What comes next? Grappling with data, reconsidering workflows, and expanding collaboration following a large-scale collection survey (Jan. 12,2021)

Learn how assessment data can inform future collection development decisions, collection management activities, and preservation priorities.


Weatherly Stephan, Head, Archival Collections Management, New York University Libraries
Kimberly Tarr, Head, Media Preservation Unit, New York University Libraries

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.
