  • Together, the Visiting Archivist and participants will address challenges such as updating collections policies, addressing storage issues, and improving disaster preparedness.
  • During the program, the Visiting Archivist will make multiple visits to selected organizations and assist in implementing archival best practices, identifying practical solutions for problem areas, and implementing a project eligible for regrant funding.
