Online workshop on records and information management

From: Lisa Avent <lavent<-at->
Date: Thursday, June 4, 2009
The Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC)
will be holding an online workshop on Records and Information
Management that comes right to you. All you need is a computer with
Internet access and you are ready to learn how to create a system to
manage your records that will save you time, money, and aggravation
in the future.

Anyone running a conservation practice or laboratory deals with
information in multiple formats, from treatment reports on paper to
documentation photos on film and client correspondence via email. By
taking this course, you will learn to:

    Assess the records you have and what you need to manage them

    Develop systems to maintain conservation treatment documentation
    as well as business records

    Understand the benefits and drawbacks of "going digital"

    Improve your operations and productivity
    Create strategies to reduce-or live with-mess
    Identify what records you can get rid of (and when)
    Preserve your vital records, even if a disaster strikes

"Records and Information Management" is a four-week online course
beginning on Thursday, June 25, 2009 and continuing, with new
activities and discussions each week, through July 22, 2009. The
course site will remain available for reference and downloads for
two weeks after the course ends. The instructor, Holly Robertsom,
will guide discussions and offer tips and resources beyond what you
find on the course site. Best of all, "Records and Information
Management for Conservation" comes to you. All you need is a
computer with Internet access and you are ready to learn.

The course fee for this course is $200 for AIC members and $300 for
non-members.
