From our friends at the National Genealogical Society: ProQuest invites librarians who work with family history patrons to the free NGS 2015 pre-conference program held at the conference center on Tuesday, 12 May 2015, starting at 9:00 a.m. John Dougan, Missouri State Archivist, and Christina Miller, CA, Senior Reference Archivist at the facility, will conduct the lectures. Bryan McGraw, Director of the National Archives, St. Louis, will share information about the holdings of this facility.
  • Providing Access to Genealogical Records in a Digital World
    Digital access is essential for today’s historical institutions. This introductory workshop examines best practices and models for indexing, scanning, and placing records online. Don’t let your institution get left behind.
  • Access Models: Websites We (You Will) Love
  • Planning and Practical Advice for Providing Access
  • Imaging for Access
  • National Personnel Records Center
ProQuest will provide lunch for librarians who pre-register. NGS conference registration is not required. For more information about the speakers and program, visit the website.
