Protocols 101: A Case-study Intensive on How to Start the Conversation at Your Institution
Wednesday, April 22, (time TBD)
The InterContinental San Francisco (room TBD)
This workshop is designed to be an interactive “clinic” that compliments the Protocols 101: How to Start the Conversation at Your Institution course originally presented by Nicholas Wojcik with guest speaker Veronica Reyes-Escudero on May 15, 2019 in Tucson, Arizona.
Through small break out group exercises and guided discussions, Protocols 101: A Case-study Intensive will continue to explore the tenets of the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials (PNAAM), a recently endorsed Society of American Archivists (SAA) standard. Participants will be prompted to analyze real world scenarios and case studies that highlight best practices for successful outreach and collaboration as well as explore possible action items that address the question: “How can your institution prepare for proactive communications with tribal communities?" Attendees are highly encouraged to view beforehand the video recording and lesson plan for Protocols 101: How to Start the Conversation at Your Institution course posted here on the Sustainable Heritage Network.
