AHA and SAA to co-host digital archives workshops

The Association of Hawai‘i Archivists and the Society of American Archivists, with the support of UH Mānoa’s Hamilton Library, are pleased to present 4 full-day workshops on topics relating to digital archives. These courses, taught by experts in the field of digital archives, are designed to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to manage the demands of born-digital records. These courses are usually only offered on the U.S. continent, so we encourage you to take advantage of this great (and close-to-home) professional development opportunity!

All workshops will be held in Hamilton Library’s room 306 (in the main building). Early-bird and regular registration cost for SAA members is $199/$269 per workshop. For non-members, it is $259/$319 per workshop.

Sign up for any or all of the workshops via the links below.
