Connecticut Collections Finding Aid Project Info Session
Applications are now open for the Connecticut Collections Finding Aid Grant!
This opportunity is limited to organizations that are members of Connecticut Collections. It will provide 25 organizations with FREE, one-on-one help from a professional archivist. The participating organizations in this grant project will each work with a Traveling Archivist to arrange and describe five collections in their archives and produce finding aids to add to the newly updated CTCo database and public portal.
Online finding aids make it possible for researchers, students, and teachers to discover the important stories and information in your organization's archives. If you apply and are selected, a Traveling Archivist will work with you at your site and remotely to help you create the finding aids.
Join this information session to get a preview of the application process, and hear from people who have worked with the Traveling Archivists to create finding aids at their institutions—and are reaping the benefits. You'll also have an opportunity to ask questions. (We'll be recording the session and circulating the video to our CTCo members afterwards, so feel free to sign up even if you can't make it live.)
Funding for this project is provided by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission of the National Archives.
