Archiving Project For County Records Gets Underway This Week

From Potter County Today

archivingPotter County has qualified for a joint federal/state program designed to help local governments organize and protect important records. The project, which will involve many county departments, gets underway this week. Commissioner Susan Kefover has agreed to serve as the point person. It’s part of a project being spearheaded by the Pennsylvania State Archives to assist county governments in archiving records and historical documents.

The Potter County Commissioners were awarded a grant that covers the costs for a professional archivist/records manager to work with elected officials, department heads and administrative personnel over an eight-week period on archiving, backing up and purging county records. A separate component of the project will be a workshop during which borough and township officials will be educated on record preservation.
