The Texas Historical Records Advisory Board (THRAB) is pleased to offer an educational opportunity free of charge to individuals working with historical collections and who lack a background or formal training in archives. Through funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), THRAB has partnered with the American Association of State and Local History (AASLH) to reserve a select number of spots in their upcoming beginner’s online course, Basics of Archives.
Designed for those with little to no archival experience, the AASLH instructor presents modules online over five weeks from January 10 – February 13, 2022, with lessons covering the essential components of archives work from acquisition to outreach. Registration preference will be given to employees or volunteers of smaller institutions and those that receive little or no funding for professional development. THRAB may limit registration to one person per institution to allocate space equitably. Please note that THRAB supports Texas repositories.
