Webinar description:

This webinar will be recorded and made available on the ArchivesSpace YouTube channel.

In this webinar, Lori Donovan (Archive-It) will discuss the Archive-It/ArchivesSpace integration that was developed as part of the Archiving the Websites of Contemporary Composers Mellon grant, which the Internet Archive collaborated on with New York University.  Lori will also share information about the APIs that underly the Archive-It service and ways that these might be leveraged to integrate metadata from Archive-It into ArchivesSpace repositories.

Dallas Pillen (University of Michigan) will present on the Bentley Historical Library’s use of ArchivesSpace to manage descriptive metadata about websites captured with Archive-It. The presentation will discuss why and how the Bentley decided to manage its descriptive metadata about archived websites in ArchivesSpace and will provide an overview of a locally developed ArchivesSpace plugin that integrates the two systems to facilitate this work.

A discussion will follow.  ArchivesSpace users who have integrated with Archive-It or are considering integrating with Archive-It are encouraged to participate in this discussion in an effort to identify and highlight current community efforts or the potential for community collaboration to encourage integration between the two systems.


Lori Donovan is the Senior Program Manager for Web Archiving at the Internet Archive. Lori manages Archive-It service growth, which includes leading a team of Web Archivists and Technical Support staff who provide instruction, guidance and support for Archive-It users, and interfacing with the engineering team to develop new features and functionality for the Archive-It service.  Lori has a Master of Information degree from University of Michigan, and a Bachelor’s degree from Boise State University, where she majored in history and political science.

Dallas Pillen is the Archivist for Metadata and Digital Curation at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library, where he oversees the library’s use of ArchivesSpace, Archive-It, Archivematica, and DSpace. He is also a member of the ArchivesSpace Technical Advisory Council and co-chair of the Society of American Archivists’ Encoded Archival Standards Section.

Who should attend:
