Due to the overwhelming success of last year's workshop, "Basic of Project Management for Archivists", the Archivists Round Table is pleased to announce that it will be offering this workshop a second time on May 22nd.

Archivists have always been managing projects -- from processing a collection to creating an exhibit to developing a website -- yet project management training is often overlooked in archival science programs.  As technology improves, so do the tools and techniques that can help archivists successfully perform assessments, create documentation, juggle resources, and manage expectations.  In this workshop, you’ll learn practical project management skills which will help you work with vendors, understand end-users, and communicate more effectively with stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle. Participants will take away practical tips which can be implemented on the job.  Special attention will be paid to free and open source tools available online.


The workshop will be led by Mitch Brodsky, Treasurer of ART and the Digital Archives Project Manager at the New York Philharmonic. He currently coordinates and manages the digitization and online presentation of the NYP Digital Archives which will hold 1.3 million pages of music scores, programs, business records, images, press clippings, and more by the end of 2012. Prior to this, Brodsky was the Digital Archivist at the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, where he led projects in mass digitization, library automation, and digital asset migration among others. After obtaining a BM in Music Education from The College of New Jersey and an MM in trumpet performance from Mannes College of Music, he received his MLIS from Rutgers University.
