Vance will touch on various archives projects including the educational workshops being offered throughout the state, the Marion Stark Gaines Photography collection and efforts to preserve it, and how archives can be a source of tourism for communities.
Vance said, “I look forward to sharing with conference goers the exciting and innovative work going on here at the Billups-Garth Archives”
