Money Matters in Archives & Special Collections: Managing Budgets
Fellows in Rare Book School's Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship for Diversity, Inclusion & Cultural Heritage present "Money Matters in Archives and Special Collections," a two-part, virtual workshop series on salary negotiation and managing budgets.
The workshops are open to all but will be aimed at BIPOC library & archives professionals and students, providing them with tools to navigate financial management in their institutions and to advocate for themselves & their collections. Attendees will be entered into a raffle to win $50 gift cards to Bookshop.org.
In this workshop, Naomi Nelson will give attendees tools and tips for understanding and navigating budgets in institutional special collections. The workshop will consist of a brief presentation with ample time for Q&A and an activity in small breakout groups. Attendees should be prepared to actively participate.
