We are pleased to announce the creation of a new ArchivesSpace listserv dedicated to the needs and conversations of ArchivesSpace users who are lone arrangers or working at small archives. You do not need to be from an institution at the Very Small or Small membership level to participate in this listserv, and those from the Very Small and Small membership levels are welcome to participate in other member listservs. The intended purpose of this listserv, however, is to serve as a forum where lone arrangers or archivists from smaller archives may communicate with each other to share techniques and strategies for using ArchivesSpace with consideration for the particular challenges that smaller institutions face. This listserv was created based on feedback received by the community in surveys and at forums, particularly the conversations had by people from the Small and Very Small member institutions at past Annual Forums.
As with all ArchivesSpace member listservs, this list is open only to staff at ArchivesSpace member organizations. As such, email addresses should be registered to the institution from which the person is qualified as an ArchivesSpace member. Email addresses registered to Gmail, Hotmail, and the like will not be subscribed to the list.
You can join this new listserv here:http://lyralists.lyrasis.org/mailman/listinfo/archivesspace_small_archives_users_group
If you have questions about this new listserv or suggestions for additional community engagement avenues, contact Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
