The following announcement is brought to you by Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York.
Last fall, DHPSNY's webinars helped New York institutions develop and implement new funding strategies, rethink the way they house and maintain their collections, and establish best practices for digital preservation. This spring, we've lined up another series of presentations catered to the needs of small- to medium-sized collecting institutions. Learn more and register below!
