Please join us for this ten-part webinar series exploring the various services the Empire State Library Network has to offer.
Ask the Archivist is a service for members of ESLN councils that provides answers to basic questions regarding archives and special collections. This is a pilot program that will be evaluated after July 2023.
Archivists at several of the Councils of the Empire State Library Network (ESLN) staff this service. The staff will provide advice to colleagues on all aspects of archival work, such as processing, preservation, reference, acquisition, appraisal, and digital projects. We invite all your questions on archives and special collections, big or small.
