Funding supports archival education and training for 130 archivists, librarians, and curators to attend four workshops in the state of Florida on preservation and access practices and standards.

The University of Florida will partner with the Florida Center for Library Automation, Florida State University, the University of Central Florida, the University of Miami, and the University of South Florida to provide training to archivists and others who care for historical records through a workshop series covering preservation and access standards and practices including: 1) preservation and management of photographs, 2) minimal level processing of multi-format archival collections, 3) descriptive standards, and 4) archival information systems used to document and access historical materials. NEH funding will support a regional education program, which will provide training at no cost to participants. A secondary goal is to establish a level of expertise among key Florida archivists and professionals so that they can implement and sustain an in-state education program. A third goal is to determine educational needs through surveys and evaluative tools.
