The ACM History Committee is sponsoring a two-day archiving workshop to be held May 21-22, 2014, in Minneapolis, MN, that is designed to help diffuse knowledge of professional archival practices into ACM's membership and others with an active interest in preserving computer heritage.

The audience will include people who are creating archives, not just those who are using them.

The workshop will be of special interest to ACM officers and staff, SIG leaders, historically minded ACM members, and others working on computer history archiving projects. Priority will be given to ACM members and members of other national computer societies affiliated with ACM. Participants will leave with a "tool kit" of practical, useful procedures as well as insights into professional archiving practices. Project proposals are due by Jan. 15, 2014.
