Save the date! The Midwest Archives Conference (MAC) Speaker’s Bureau
welcomes registrants for the workshop, “Arrangement and Description 101,”
to be held at Augustana College on Friday, June 23rd, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Pam
Hackbart-Dean, Professor and Head of the University of Illinois Chicago’s
Special Collections and University Archives, will lead the free workshop
for participants.

Processing is the physical act of assessing, arranging, and describing
archival collections. There are a number of steps conducted by the
archivist to ensure collections are processed effectively and efficiently
with the overarching goal of providing access for researchers. Arrangement
and description of archival materials are the nuts and bolts of all
archival work.

This workshop introduces participants to the methods and standards
archivists use to arrange and describe collections of all shapes and sizes.
Basic principles and best practices associated with archival processing
will be discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to develop
the analytical and decision-making skills required to arrange and describe
historical records and manage the process.

Though the workshop is free, registration is required. Space is limited to
the first 35 registrants. The workshop will be held at the Gerber Center on
Augustana College’s campus, located at 3435 9 1/2 Avenue, Rock Island,
IL. Parking
is available near the front entrance. Please see this map
