Susan Feller is a friend who works with the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, Oklahoma Cultural Heritage Trust and the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums. She alerted me that the Oklahoma Cultural Heritage Trust is hosting a free, face-to-face opportunity to attend an online webinar with others in downtown Oklahoma City on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, from 12:30–2:30 p.m. The actual webinar starts at 1 pm. The webinar description is:
Small museums, historical societies, libraries and archives share a common mission: preserving our cultural heritage. To accomplish this, archivists, librarians and museum professionals must be effective not only in the technical aspects of preservation but also in the areas of communication and advocacy.
In this webinar, provided through the American Alliance of Museums, presenters will discuss the issues that our organizations are advocating for, including preserving historical records, copyright issues, privacy concerns and funding for efforts such as the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Connecting to Collections initiative, the National Historical Publications and Record Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Archives and Records Administration.
The webinar will cover examples of awareness-building and collaboration in action on local, state, regional and national levels, including the American Alliance of Museums and Society for American Archivists (SAA) advocacy agendas, the Hoosier Heritage Alliance and EveryLibrary. Presenters will share tools and resources that you can use to work with other institutions, communicate with your audience and build support in your community for your collections and services.
If you cannot attend at the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, you and others in your organization can register online to attend for $50. More information about this event (including the registration link to attend free in Oklahoma City) is available on the website of the Oklahoma Cultural Heritage Trust.
