EABH Annual Meeting: Vienna

The meeting will take the form of two workshops:

28 April 2016 - Archives Online: It's all about choices 

The workshop aims to present, deepen and expand the knowledge and skills related to financial institutions’ online archives. It aims to support archivists and records managers in strategically planning and implementing the online presentation of their institutions’ archives.
The workshop will examine three aspects: 1.) How to choose which information to provide online; 2.) how to meet users’ expectations, 3.) how to publish and disseminate data online.

29 April 2016 - Financial Interconnections in History 

After 30 years of globalisation, there is an opportunity to reflect on the dramatic changes that took place in global financial markets on the eve of the globalisation of the 1990s and examine how the structures and patterns of global financial markets were established.
This conference will explore the theme of financial globalisation from a longer term perspective as well as drawing on the experience and testimony of participants in the transformation of markets in the 80s and 90s.
