The ability to successfully manage a project is becoming increasingly important to the livelihood of archival institutions as we attempt to respond to institutional changes in innovative ways. A well-managed project can have transformative effects on not just a  collection of materials, but on archivists and institutions as well. This lightning session will present a variety of project management case studies or current experiences. Presenters will share successful stories, or experiences that served as learning opportunities. After all presenters have spoken for three to five minutes, the session will open to you [the audience] to provide either sympathy or an innovative solution of your own.
Topics include:
  • Finding aid migration projects
  • Collaborating with student workers and/or outside stakeholders
  • Managing a large, multi-year processing project as a project archivist
  • Balancing act of adding outreach into a processing grant
  • A large scale collection relocation project including a wide variety of special collections material
  • Using Basecamp and other project management tools to manage  a variety of projects (digitization, ASpace migration, book publishing, etc.)
