Selecting, processing, and preserving materials for collections are one side of the archival coin. Discovery and access are the crucial flip side to archival practice and have long been served by digital technologies and the web. Researchers have come to expect online availability and archival workers are ever more dependent on the automation of collection management, reporting, and reference to achieve their goals. As analog materials are digitized and born digital materials are served to an ever-widening global audience, archivists in turn must increase their knowledge and understanding of their responsibilities as copyright owners and users.
In this three-part workshop, participants will join Atlas System’s Dan Specht and Rob Herrmann as they introduce, describe, and demonstrate ArchivesSpace, an open-source web application for managing archives information, and Aeon, an automated request and workflow management software solution for libraries and archives. Dr. Kenneth Crews will then lead a talk on digital archives and copyright issues related to current practices. Opportunities for questions and answers will be provided at the end of each presentation.
Scholarships are available to cover the cost of registration. For more information, visit 2021 Fall Workshop.
