Wondering how to complete your archival projects more effectively? Hear new ideas for project management from a diverse panel of experts, including archivists from a small museum, a university, a state historical society, and an archival consulting company. Each speaker discusses the process - not product - of managing archival projects. Key take-away points include how to successfully create work breakdown structures, maintain staffing workflows, develop effective tools, conduct on-the-fly project course corrections, and assure access.
