310 - Religious Materials Toolbox for Archivists: Solutions to Problems Facing the Pro

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Selecting terms that succinctly represent materials in religious archives and enable users to locate pertinent information is a critical mission, but establishing a standard vocabulary for religious archives is challenging. Panelists discuss the development of a subject thesaurus, creating tools to improve the information retrieval process, and (from the small archive perspective) a tool to standardize practices through a web-based manual. Audience input is encouraged!
