Presentations may center around completed or ongoing work, sharing objectives and outcomes that attendees can learn from and then apply to their own archival work through gained practical and theoretical knowledge.

Workshops will be a total of 60 to 90 minutes to teach and showcase skills and knowledge that attendees may be able to apply to their own archival work. These sessions may feature a presentation along with a hands-on/interactive component.
