Continuing Education Committee 2023 News

We are currently evaluating topics based on feedback we received from all of you. Those two topics are:
Special collections/Resources around the state
Digitization projects

These two topics received the most requests in our recent poll. We are currently investigating and creating a curriculum that will hopefully answer your questions on these topics.

As part of that investigation, we are asking for your help:

On the topic of the Special collection – we are looking for assistance with content and panelists. Send us an email to the email address below:

If you are interested in being part of a panel discussion on the topic
If you want to make us aware of the location of a special collection (your library/university/genealogy center)
What form are they in?
Books
Digital Media

On the digitization topic, we could also use your assistance in the same ways
If you are interested in being part of a panel discussion on the topic
Do you have a digitization project underway
What are you digitizing?
Are you doing it internally?
If not internally – who did you get to do the work?

On either of the topics – what do you want to know?

What kind of questions do you want us to answer?

Media of choice

Please email your information to: judynmuhn@gmail.com
