Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an archival consultant? Margot Note, founder and principal of Margot Note Consulting, shares with us her journey into consulting work and her experiences working in nontraditional archival settings. In her new book with SAA, Creating Family Archives: A Step-by-Step Guide to Saving Your Memories for Future Generations, Margot shares tips for effectively explaining an archivist’s work and archival principles to the public.
Family history is important. But who’s in charge of saving all of the photos, videos, aged documents and cherished papers? They need a better home than a cardboard box. Creating Family Archives is written by an archivist for your family, taking them step-by-step through the process of preserving the stuff of their own history.
