PRESENTATIONS

Presentations are an important means for me to interact with members of the archival profession and to disseminate my research; I consider this not only to be an important responsibility but also a means to afford me the opportunity to gather feedback from others. While I have offered workshops to biologists, agronomists, environmentalists, auditors, forensic experts, lawyers, privacy commissioners, cartographers, musicologists, and librarians, I primarily serve my own profession. I have given short intensive courses and presentations on the findings and products of InterPARES to the staff of numerous archival institutions and to the graduate students of many record and archival programs.
