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.”
