Education and Advisory Services

The British Columbia Archival Education and Advisory Service (EAS) offers educational opportunities, workshops, and provides advisory services to archives and Archivists throughout the province. Education and Advisory Services are available to both AABC members and non-members. Advisory services are available by:

  • phone, mail, or e-mail
  • in person on-site visits
  • through speaking engagements at AABC regional meetings or at other meetings or forums

The AABC offers multiple methods of educational delivery including distance education courses, in-person workshops and webinars.  Education offered by the AABC is aimed at those new to archival work but it is also aimed at practicing archivists who want to delve deeper into a particular media type or topic. These courses are also of interest to individuals who are responsible for records management and/or providing reference service for their institution.

Registration Deadlines & the Fine Print

Most AABC education opportunities are open to anyone interested. However, if space is limited or if demand is high, the AABC will give priority to its members. 

Any request to cancel an active registration will be charged a $15.00 administration fee. Any refund requests must also be received in writing at least 21 days prior to the workshop/course unless otherwise indicated. After that date, registration fees are non-refundable. For distance education courses, registration fees are non-refundable once the course has begun. Should the AABC cancel a workshop, all registration fees will be reimbursed in full.

All workshops are limited to twenty (20) participants, unless otherwise indicated in the workshop description. Members are strongly advised to REGISTER EARLY as courses with inadequate registration will be cancelled. Participants are asked to ensure they arrive on time for the start of workshops and not to leave before the full completion of the course.

Member institutions can send a maximum of 3 employees/volunteers to a workshop at the reduced membership rate.
