A new public website presents Archival Education for Municipal Clerks, a modular, self-paced education program modeled on the successful implementation of the Massachusetts Municipal Clerks Archives Education Program, developed with support from NHPRC. The two-year course introduces clerks to archival concepts and electronic records strategies. In their discussion of how states can adapt this program, the presenters share assessments from several states that reviewed the program for adaptability.
