Kelly Spring, Access Archivist & Head of Digital Curation for the Special Collections Department at East Carolina University, has recently written a handbook, Project Management For Archivists: Befriending Your Backlog.
Stymied by the amount of material in your backlog? Wondering where to start? Project Management for Archivists offers simple, step-by-step instructions on taking control of your inventory. From archival accessioning to handling born-digital collections, the methods in this little handbook will help you systematically master your work. You will learn from a seasoned archivist and project manager how to create inventories, define baseline standards, and develop useful documents to track progress. Best of all, examples of checklists and workflows are included for easy reference. This is one resource that any archivist will want to keep close at hand.You can find this little gem in ECU's institutional repository, The ScholarShip.
