Many of you have asked whether there is a specific conference focus or theme this year–there is not. for 2018 we encourage everyone to consider the vast history of New York — and the many ways to tell the stories of New York as we hope to do as well.  We’ll have more on that, along with registration information in September.

Grenander Special Collections & Archives, and the New York State Archives Partnership Trust with additional support from the Fenimore Art Museum and the New York State Museum.
