Telling and Preserving Our Stories: Suggestions for Archiving Historical Materials

Room 713A
How are you telling your organization’s story? How are you preserving historical material? These are questions that many interfaith organizations face. The Network of Religious Communities in Buffalo has been sorting through a century’s worth of archival materials and is making plans to digitize and share some of the materials online. This presentation will discuss strategies for organizing materials, what to save and what to discard, and other practical issues for preserving your history. It will also allow for discussion about how to use these materials to illustrate the history and the significance of your organization.
