Madison, WI

In 2017, Hannah Wang from the Wisconsin Historical Society (WHS) introduced us to an ambitious electronic records preservation project called, WiSPER.   This is the conclusion of that project. Join us as Hannah describes the work done to complete the 3-year National Historical Publications & Records Commission grant funded project which focused on managing, preserving, and providing access to electronic records. Learn how WHS worked to implement best practices and processes for managing electronic records at the agency level, establish a sustainable electronic records transfer management system, and preserved and provide access to the electronic records that they collect. This presentation will cover the results of their project, the resources produced by the project team, lessons learned, maintenance needs, and WHS's plans for the future.
