2017 Summer Speaker Series: Ask an Archivist

July 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Information Technology, Imaging Services, and Conservation Departments Explored

Featuring Archivists Nancy Sheads, Corey Lewis, and Jennifer Cruickshank

Providing access to the collections involves so many vital processes that we do not often consider . . . including traditional paper conservation, digital preservation, and electronic archiving. Who are the professionals who provide physical care of our collections, create the digital images of our materials, and who make sure that our electronic records are well preserved and accessible. Talk to the technical specialists who make the archives work.

The Maryland State Archives is continuing its Brown Bag Lunch and Learn Speakers Series this summer by hosting three Ask An Archivist events. Have you ever wondered about what different departments exist behind the scenes at the Maryland State Archives? Curious about what duties the archivists perform as they care for and make accessible the collections here? Come and meet our archivists and learn more about their jobs and the inner-workings of the MSA! We have scheduled three moderated panel discussions to learn more about the important work that these employees carry out to preserve and serve all the materials at the Maryland State Archives.

All are welcome to these free events. Feel free to bring both your lunch and any questions you may have. Please email or call Emily Oland Squires to RSVP to this event at emily.squires@maryland.govo410-260-6443.Please note: a valid photo ID is required to enter the Archives building.
