Host a Workshop and Apply for the SGA Personal Digital Archiving Workshop Outreach Grant

You're invited to host a personal digital archiving workshop and apply for the SGA Personal Digital Archiving Workshop Outreach Grant!

The Society of Georgia Archivists Personal Digital Archiving Workshop Outreach Grant is meant to help information professionals in Georgia promote the idea that librarians, archivists, and records managers are a source of expertise for assisting individuals (the public, family members, students, corporate employees, etc.) with their personal digital archiving needs. The grant will be given to the first three individuals who successfully apply for the grant after hosting and teaching a workshop at their institutions/in their communities, using the curriculum materials designed by SGA, GLA, and Atlanta ARMA, available here.

  • A gift card ($100 for first workshop, $50 for next two workshops, based on date completed application is received by SGA Outreach Manager)
  • Recognition on our websites and social media accounts
  • Potential opportunities to participate in speaking and co-training events about the workshop
