Hi Gary — Great to see you in this on-line community. Two suggestions: AASLH has an on-line Basics of Archives course that begins at the end of October. Melanie Sturgeon, Az State Librarian, also gives a very similar one-day course at various places around the state. The next one is on September 28 in Phoenix and it’s free, but you need to pre-register at http://www.azlibrary.gov/eventreg/. Both are on the MAA website (www.azmuseums.org)under Professional Development.
