The following is a list of upcoming training events offered by the Utah State Archives. All employees of a governmental entity are invited to participate, especially records officers and chief administrative officers. Utah State Archives’ training events are free of charge.

Instructions on how to register for Archives’ events can be found here.

Registration links for events sponsored by an outside professional organization are included. The cost of participation is determined by the organization. Contact the organization directly for registration information.

“A Day with GRAMA”

Utah State Archives’ annual spring conference.

Topics will include: fees, legislative updates, Open Records Portal usage trends, panel discussion: responding to public requests for email. A complete schedule can be found at here. As with all Archives’ training events, there is no cost to attend the conference.

We encourage all who are able to attend in-person to do so. The conference is a great opportunity to meet other records managers and discuss challenges and successes.

Transitioning from Paper to Electronic Records: Challenges and Successful Approaches
Making the transition from paper-based, manual processes to automated, electronic processes can be daunting. Although some organizations have successfully automated key processing areas, many organizations struggle as they take steps toward an electronic records environment. Lack of executive buy in, cost overruns, unexpected technology challenges, insufficient quality control, and low end-user adoption are but a few obstacles that can limit the path to success. During this session, Howard will share successful approaches, challenges and lessons learned, while assisting organizations in their journey towards achieving an electronic records environment, including an overview of what you need to know about electronic records and electronic records management systems.

    Mike, I’d recommend this only if your front-line data gathering people are currently experiencing a higher than usual difficulty with certain sources in Utah: There’s a training session Friday given by the state archives people (who can be of great assistance with current public records requests) which can be accessed on-line. See the attached announcement.
