The Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) is proud to recognize six new graduates of the Tennessee Archives Institute. The archives development program at TSLA annually hosts this two-and-a-half day series of workshops on the principles and practices of archival management and records preservation. In order to graduate from the program with a certificate of archival management, archivists must complete three years of training.
This year's program graduates are:
Chad Fred Bailey of the Washington County Archives in Jonesborough
Paul Frank of the Sevier County Records Management and Archives Department in Sevierville
Cindy Grimmitt of the Maury County Archives in Columbia
Marilyn Holmes of the Dyer County Archives in Dyersburg
Aimee Saunders of the Williamson County Archives in Franklin
Randy Tatum of the Sumner County Archives in Gallatin
This year, TSLA welcomed 28 participants from archives, libraries and museums from around the state. The institute included sessions on the arrangement and description of records, collection policies, records retention schedules, public records commissions, creation of clear indexes and finding aids, as well as behind-the-scenes tours of the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives. The archivists also learned about document care and preservation from TSLA conservators, and put their instruction to use in hands-on document cleaning.
The institute provides participants with opportunities to interact and exchange ideas with other archivists and records keepers from across the state.
"The Tennessee Archives Institute provides an excellent venue for archivists to hone their skills," Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. "I congratulate this year's graduates for their hard work and the initiative they showed in participating in this program."
Assistant State Archivist Wayne Moore said: “Not only do participants in the Archives Institute learn valuable tricks of the trade, but they also get opportunities to network with colleagues during their training. It's very helpful for archivists throughout our state to be communicating about best practices within their profession.”
