C-Falls Hosts Digital Archive Seminar

By Beacon Staff

Staff members from the Montana Historical Society will be at the Glacier Discovery Square in Columbia Falls tomorrow for a training seminar and discussion about digital archiving projects. The free presentation will include the basics of how to start a project, project management and what to collect.

The Montana Memory Project is a collection of digital documents and items relating to Montana’s cultural heritage; you can check out the state collection here. The Columbia Falls branch of the county library system and the First Best Place Task Force are beginning a local collection in the new Glacier Discovery Square as part of this project.

Most in attendance will be people involved in a planned digital archives project for Flathead County; however, the training will be general enough so that anyone considering a digital archives project will benefit. The seminar runs from noon to 5 p.m. If you’d like to attend, RSVP to Barry Conger at [email protected] or Kim Crowly at [email protected].
