The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. In response to concerns from the history community, American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) has developed a new webinar series — AASLH conversations — to help practitioners and institutions discuss how to respond to the current crisis.
While no one has all the answers, AASLH hopes these topic-focused webinars will provide a space to share ideas and learn from each other. If you have questions about COVID-19 resources, examples that could help others, or would like to offer your assistance or expertise, contact AASLH at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can be found here.
The State Archive’s Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York (DHPSNY) webinars are another great alternative to face-to-face workshops. The webinars address emerging issues and best practices, with content scaled to apply to small- and medium-sized historical organizations with limited resources. More information and the full schedule of upcoming presentations and webinar recordings can be found here.
