Webinar description:

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

Kevin Clair, Digital Collections Librarian at Penn State University Libraries, will discuss the ArchivesSpace/Alma Integration Plugin he developed during his time at University of Denver.  In his current position at Penn State University Libraries, Kevin is the product owner for the cultural heritage digital repository, gathering functional requirements from end users and developing strategies with collection managers to ensure the repository is meeting the needs of faculty, students, and researchers. Prior to this he was the ArchivesSpace product owner at the University of Denver, where he did similar things with different types of content. In both roles he worked to facilitate moving data between library and archival management applications, to reduce the pain and suffering of technical services workers and improve the user experience for researchers.

Adrien Hilton, Head of the Manuscript Section at Harvard University’s Houghton Library, will discuss current workflows at Harvard for managing data in both Alma and ArchivesSpace and what she needs from an integration. Adrien will outline the preliminary work she’s done to gather use cases from other repositories. She hopes to build community support for future Alma/ArchivesSpace development work.  In her position at Harvard, Adrien oversees archives processing and manuscript cataloging. Prior to coming to Houghton, Adrien held positions at Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library and New York University’s Tamiment Library. Adrien is an advisory member of SAA’s Technical Subcommittee on Describing Archives: A Content Standard.
