Community Archival Workshop 2015
Mahalo to all of you who attended our Community archival workshop. In collaboration with and support from the Association of Hawaiʻi Archivists (AHA), and our experts for the day Helen Smith, Linda Hee and Kara Wagoner-Plamann, along with attending community members our workshop was a success! The workshop offered two 2 hour sessions tailored for non-professionals and focused on the preservation of paper documents, photographs, books, some fabrics and materials.
