The Archives Society of Alberta (ASA) offers a 6-day intensive course providing an introduction to the fundamental principles and tasks undertaken by the archival profession. Topics include acquisition, accessioning, appraisal, arrangement, description, preservation, conservation, and disaster planning, among others. The course is taught by experienced ASA staff members as well as guest lecturers. Participants receive an Archives Institute certificate from the ASA upon completion of the course and take home exercise. The course is perfect for those working in or managing archival institutions with no previous education or training.
This year’s Archives Institute will be held May 4-9 in Calgary. The deadline to register is April 17, 2015. For more details, please visit our website.
We hope to see you at the Archives Institute!
