Demystifying Archival Projects: Free eBook

Lucidea has announced that archives expert Margot Note’s new book, Demystifying Archival Projects: Five Essentials for Success, is now available. The latest publication from Lucidea Press offers pragmatic advice from Ms. Note, a seasoned archives expert and consultant specializing in project management, with significant experience as both a practitioner and advisor.

This book will benefit archivists who lead or participate in projects without formal project management training, whether to address a need, improve an existing space or service, or implement a new system. As work in archives continues to become more project-driven, educational and professional development opportunities for archivists have not kept pace. This book aims to provide the needed information - just enough project management methodology - to bridge that knowledge gap.

Margot Note has 20 years of experience in the national and international sectors as an author, a consultant, a Certified Archivist, a Certified Records Manager, and an Information Governance Professional. She holds a Master's in Library and Information Science and Post-Master’s in Archives & Records Management, both from Drexel University. Margot is also a popular guest author for Lucidea’s Think Clearly Blog, and regularly presents Lucidea-sponsored webinars on topics highly relevant to archivists.

Says Ron Aspe, Lucidea’s CEO, “We’re excited to bring you the next book under our Lucidea Press imprint; we believe it’s an essential resource for archives professionals wanting to learn and attempt project management, with practical guidance drawn from Margot’s career as a consultant, innovator, and advocate.”
