Did you know that the Society of American Archivists has a special section to advocate for and support religious archivists? It is the Archivists of Religious Collections Section and they provide valuable training support and resources to religious archivists.
One way they do this is by sharing resources such as forms and manuals and policies on their microsite. The resources are free to download and adapt and are available here: Models and Resources.
Another ways is through organizing and delivering Lunch and Learn webinars which are training sessions with amazing presenters! You can view recordings of these webinars on the YouTube channel: SAA ARCS Resources YouTube channel.
Besides the webinars, the Archivists of Religious Collections Section also holds Archival Chats which are open discussions around a topic, giving archivists the chance to network and share ideas.
Our archives is proud to support the work of the Society of American Archivists – Archivists of Religious Collections Section. The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada generously hosts the Lunch and Learn and Archival Chat sessions that are open to all archivists, and provide invaluable support to religious archivists in particular.
