Project" --

Your archive or library has an important collection of audio recordings, and
you've come up with a project to process it. You're thinking of writing a
grant to help fund the project, but you're not sure how to begin.

On Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at the Westin Convention Center Hotel,
Pittsburgh, PA, the ARSC Education and Training Committee is presenting a
pre-conference workshop that will help you find answers to all your
questions. This day-long workshop, "From Idea to Deliverable: Planning and
Executing Your Grant-Funded Project," can help you understand and find your
way through the complicated and complex world of writing grant proposals and
completing a grant- funded project. The workshop includes an afternoon tour
of The MediaPreserve. Bus transportation will be provided.

ARSC is offering this pre-conference workshop in a live-streaming, online
version for those unable to attend the conference in person. An archived
version will also be made available to all registrants, for a limited time.

The workshop is approved for five Archival Recertification Credits through
the Academy of Certified Archivists. Please contact them for more

The in-person workshop is limited to 50 participants.

Workshop registration is not included in the conference registration fee.

The deadline for discounted, early in-person workshop registration has been
extended to May 20.

The registration deadline for the online workshop is May 25.
