   A two-day Society of American Archivists workshop hosted by Immigration
   History Research Center of the College of Liberal Arts, University of Minnesota.
   Who should attend?  Librarians, records managers, museum staff, and admin-
   istrators who have responsibility for archival records but little or no archives
   Workshop Description
   Although they have much in common with librarians, records managers, and
   museum staff, archivists must use different practices to protect the integrity of
   historical records.
   A strong archives program puts into practice long-standing archival principles.
   What are those principles and how do you implement them?  This workshop
   provides an overview of the core archival functions of appraisal, accessioning,
   arrangement and description, preservation, reference, and access.
   This workshop will help you understand:
   -The knowledge, ethics and resources needed for professional development
   as an archivist
   -Archives and historical records terminology
   -Principles of archival organization and functions:  provenance,
   respect de fonds, and original order
   -Policies, professional standards, and best practices -- and
   gain the ability to evaluate and improve your program
   -How to make choices for balancing access and preser-
   vation issues for historical materials
   -The role of the archives in fulfilling the mission of an institution
