In late 2016, I was hired to work on an exciting, new project of the New York State Archives and New York State Library, titled Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services of New York (DHPSNY). Because the program offers a variety of training/services to collecting institutions including libraries, I thought I would share it here.
The following is a description from the DHPSNY website:
Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York (DHPSNY) is a statewide program that supports the vast network of non-government, unique library, and archival repositories that safeguard New York’s historical records. DHPSNY provides a range of free services to eligible cultural institutions throughout the state, including archives, libraries, historical societies, and museums which operate programs to preserve and make accessible records of enduring value.
Registration for the Spring 2017 Workshop: Essential Policies and Procedures for Cultural Institutions is now open!
