This spring the State Archives will be holding a series of “Just the Basics” webinars around the state. These webinars will introduce records-keepers to the records management practices in Ohio, including the procedures for creating records retention schedules and filing certificates of disposal with the State Archives. The cost is $20.00 and participants may either attend the webinar from their own office or can attend it with a group of their peers at five regional sites:
- April 26th: Akron-Summit County Public Library (1:00 pm – 2:30 pm)
