Moving from Institute to Network: Reflections on the Oregon Tribal Archives Institute, October 12, 2012

The Oregon State University Library Faculty Association invites all interested colleagues and friends to attend the first presentation of the 2012/2013 Library Faculty Seminar Series on October 12, 2012 from 10:00-11:30am.

Moving from Institute to Network: Reflections on the Oregon Tribal Archives Institute chronicles a two-year project including the culminating event, the OSU-hosted Oregon Tribal Archives Institute held August 19-24, 2012. Made possible by a two-year Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) grant, the Institute was designed to address the need for in-depth archives and records management training for Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes to support and facilitate the preservation of the cultural sovereignty of tribal nations through their archival collections and records.

Natalia Fernández, Oregon Multicultural Librarian, Tiah Edmunson-Morton, OSU Libraries’ Instruction and Outreach Archivist, and Larry Landis, Special Collections and Archives Research Center Director, collectively the Institute Planning Committee, will discuss the grant process, conducting site visits with all nine tribes’ records and archives personnel, creating needs assessment reports, designing a needs-based curriculum and planning a week-long conference. The committee will also reflect on the Institute itself and share future plans.

The presentation will take place in the Willamette Industries Seminar Rooms on the third floor of the Valley Library (VL 3622): http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/visit
