I attended the 2019 Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums Annual Conference, held this year in Red Wing on April 24th and 25th, with pre-conference events on April 23rd. MDL was well represented with a professional table at the event, and many conference attendees stopped by. They were especially interested in the new materials on rights statements put together by the MDL/University of Minnesota rights statements standardization project team consisting of me, Greta Bahnemann, Sara Ring, and Nancy Sims. On Thursday morning, I presented about rights statements and their implementation alongside Stephanie Hess of the Northfield Historical Society, one of our rights pilot project participants.
