    This free workshop will teach artists and arts organizations how to manage their records - paper and digital - and how to plan for long-term records management, preservation, and access.

    We'll work through best practices and common problems based on attendees' individual situations. Your records might be neatly filed in a filing cabinet, stashed in offsite storage, sitting in the founder's basement, going mouldy in the attic, or piled all over your home office.

    We'll cover:

    • common types of arts-related records and why they should be kept (and for how long)
    • developing an organizational system
    • what signs of decay to watch out for and how to cope
    • what supplies to buy
    • how to document your collection
    • maintenance and upkeep
    • developing an archives
    • access, privacy, and copyright
    • digitization for active use and for posterity
