Dear Oklahoma Archivists Association members,
Please help the Oklahoma Archivists Association build educational and professional development programs that will benefit you in 2022! Please take 5-10 minutes to fill out this survey which will inform the OAA Education Committee in building out programs for the coming year. https://forms.gle/JPaTYLx2rm88Pxh3A
While the survey will remain open until January 14th, 2022, I hope you will take the time now to fill it out.
Year in Review:
In 2021, we were able to offer 3 webinars and 1 – 6 part webinar series for our members and members to be, with an average of 25 participants signed up for each opportunity with 1,920 watch time minutes and 216 views for the webinar recordings hosted on the OAA YouTube channel.
– Remote Oral History Interviewing
– Getting Started with Digital Preservation
– Introduction to Scanning
– Archiving 101: Fundamentals of Collection Management
You can access recordings available for these sessions on the OAA website under “Resources” https://okarchivists.org/webinar-recordings/
Thank you to all of the OAA Education Committee members: JJ Compton, Julie Lyles, Nicole Willard, Mary Larson, Jennifer Green, and Kera Newby, for building engaging programming in 2021.
Thank you to the Oklahoma Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB) through coordination with Jan Davis for support of programming this year with funding from the National Historical Publication and Records Commission.
And most of all, thank you to our OAA members for your continued support for this growing organization of archivists and record keepers in Oklahoma. I hope you will continue to see value in this organization and, if you haven’t done so yet, volunteer for committees and appointments to help keep it moving forward.
Happy New Year and Best Wishes,
OAA Education Committee Chair (2021)
