2004 Tennessee Archives Institute
October 25 – 27, 2004
Nashville , Tennessee

The Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA), in conjunction with the University of Tennessee ’s County Technical Assistance Service (CTAS), is offering the fifth annual training program on archives and records management.

The 2004 TENNESSEE ARCHIVES INSTITUTE is designed to be a two and one-half day introduction to basic archives management issues for local government records keepers.

The 2004 Tennessee Archives Institute will focus on techniques for setting up a database for your archives, promoting and fundraising for your archives, showcasing your collection with exhibits, staffing your archives with volunteers, and space planning. Training is conducted by qualified archivists and conservators. Participants who complete the three-year cycle of courses will receive certification as Archives Managers from TSLA and CTAS.

The 2004 Tennessee Archives Institute is intended primarily for county and municipal archivists. However, records managers, historians, and genealogists, as well as county or municipal executives and clerks who serve on public records commissions, will also find the information invaluable.

This year’s program will take place in Nashville , Tennessee , at the Tennessee State Library and Archives. Classes will begin at 10:30 on Monday, October 25, and conclude at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, October 27. The registration fee for the two and one-half days is $85. Deadline for registration is October 4. We have only a limited number of slots open for this year’s Institute, so please do not delay your reservation.

The registration fee of $85 includes course materials, lunch on Monday and Tuesday, and two nights lodging at the downtown Sheraton Hotel. The Tennessee State Library and Archives will handle the arrangement and payment of the hotel accommodations.
