Workshops - Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference

Enrollment is still open for all five of the workshops being offered at the
Spring 2012 Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) in Cape May,
New Jersey. Held on Thursday, April 12, the workshops are a great way to
begin the conference and at only $45 each they are a great value! Choose
from one (or two) of the five half-day workshops:

*W1 (9am-12): Do We Need to Save that Offering Envelope? : The Archives of
the Local House of Worship
W2 (9am-12): Introduction to Omeka
W3 (9am-12): Successful Outreach to Middle and High School Students Through
National History Day
W4 (1-4pm): Archival Instruction: Promoting Collections, Information
Literacy and Collaboration
W5 (1-4pm): Dating 19th Century Portrait Photographs*

Each workshop has been approved by the Academy of Certified Archivists and
will qualify for C.A. recertification credits.

Workshop attendees do not need to register for the full MARAC conference -
although we highly encourage it! You also do not need to be a MARAC member,
so please spread the word to non-MARAC colleagues. Registration information
is available on the MARAC website:
