Claretian Archives Workshops announces Non-Print Materials in Religious Archives

Claretian Archives Workshops announces a 2.5-day Workshop for religious archivists on the management of Non Print Materials. The Workshop will be held October 1 – 4, 2017 at the Carmelite Spiritual Center in Darien, IL, approximately 20 miles from each of Chicago’s airports.

The residential Workshop format provides a total immersion experience for archivists needing a focused education on managing and safeguarding visual and audio records in their collections. Topics will include appraisal, storage, preservation, best practices and digitization planning – concentrating on practical solutions to implement in archives with limited resources.

The Workshop is $700.00 and includes single occupancy room/bath at the Carmelite Spiritual Center, the educational program and all instructional materials, meals, scheduled break snacks and a certificate of completion. The cost to commuters is $450.00.

Since 2007, Claretian Archives Workshops has provided affordable archival training to individuals who work for religious communities in the Roman Catholic tradition. This shorter workshop format allows for a purposeful exploration of a select topic. This intermediate program builds on the foundation of the Introductory Archives Workshops for Religious Communities.
