Archives have different needs from object collections and often are overlooked in the competition for museum staff attention and resources. In this session, attendees will hear about the Historical Society of Pennsylvania’s regional solution for small museum archives, professional archivists will summarize best practices and provide strategies for managing archival collections, and curators will speak frankly about challenges of managing archives in museums without professional archival staff.
