Collaboration to Establish a Traveling Archivist Program



[ssba]

National Archives, National Historical Publications & Records Commission logoThe Wyoming State Archives, the Wyoming State Records Advisory Board, and the University of Wyoming’s American Heritage Center are collaborating on a project intended to establish a Traveling Archivist Program (TAP) in the state of Wyoming. The main point of this project is to establish a traveling archivist program that will benefit small cultural heritage institutions on how to handle, store, process, and preserve their materials.

Jordan Meyerl was recently hired as a Project Archivist to lead this first phase of the grant project. The position is funded through the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).

Jordan is planning to conduct a survey of small cultural heritage institutions in Wyoming to determine their needs. Further information about the project will be coming soon, here and on a planned project blog. Cultural heritage institutions in Wyoming should keep their eyes open for communications regarding this project.

“We thank you in advance for your participation and look forward to working with the myriad diverse cultural heritage institutions housed in Wyoming,” Jordan said.

If you have any questions about the project, feel free to contact Jordan at jmeyerl@uwyo.edu.
