May 9: Archives & You
Instructor: Nadine Charabin
This workshop will introduce the Saskatchewan Archives and the services offered to private records creators. It will highlight the types of records that writers create, what makes these records archival, basic records management practices and the transfer process to archival custody. Aspects of research use will also be explored - why are writers’ records important to an archive and the legacy they hold?
