Thank you to everyone who registered for our first Introduction to ArchivesSpace Online workshop.  Demand was incredibly high and the workshop is currently full. If you registered for this workshop, you will receive a copy of the workshop agenda with connection information, the workbook for the workshop and a link to other getting started resources in the coming days.

To provide a good learning environment for attendees we are unable to increase the size of this workshop, but we are looking at offering other online training opportunities like this in the near future.  For now, mark your calendars for our other upcoming online offerings:

ArchivesSpace Online Forum, May 18-21, 2020

Taking place May 18-21, 2020, our second annual Online Forum will be a four-day event spanning a variety of time zones and ArchivesSpace experience levels.

The deadline for both session proposals and ideas for topics has been extended to April 22, 2020.  Submit your proposal via our online form at https://forms.gle/jraN42zqrdQ3KQD97. We will be reviewing proposals on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to get your proposals in early.

As with our in-person forums, our Online Forum will include a mix of opportunities to share and learn from each other about many different aspects of ArchivesSpace.  The forum aims to span the many time zones of our community over the course of 4 days with a three hour block each day. Visit the Online Forum wiki to view the schedule for each day.

Registration for the event will be released soon.

Take a Break with ArchivesSpace

Whether working from home for the first time, as remote working pros, or as onsite staff, most of us are doing our jobs under much different conditions than usual. As a browser based system you can access from anywhere, the ArchivesSpace application may offer a sense of archival normalcy as we each adjust. And with a welcoming and robust member community all over the world, ArchivesSpace can also offer camaraderie when many of us may feel isolated from our colleagues or the professional communities we interact with regularly.

We’re hosting casual open calls via zoom at 12pm ET each Friday. We won’t be developing agendas or presentations for these calls. We just want to provide a forum and an opportunity to connect, chat and recharge. Use this as a time to get help or talk about ArchivesSpace (or anything else) in an informal setting or just have a beverage with other ArchivesSpace users during this stressful time.

When: Fridays

Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET (9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PT)

Where: Zoom

To review the agenda for the training and register, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/101328889436. Please note: this workshop is limited to 100 registrants.

Based on our one day in-person Introduction to ArchivesSpace workshops, this training will be divided into two half day workshops to better suit an online environment. Please note that this is our first attempt at offering a workshop in an online environment and, like you, the trainers are working remotely and under very different circumstances than normal right now. Thanks in advance for your understanding if elements of the workshop do not go according to plan.

Unlike our in-person workshops, this online training will not include any live practice exercises, but a shared instance of ArchivesSpace will be provided for attendees for their use. We will try to address all attendee questions related to ArchivesSpace but, due to the nature of this workshop, we will not be able to troubleshoot anyone’s individual implementation of ArchivesSpace.

In advance of the training, attendees will receive a copy of the workshop agenda with connection information, the workbook for the workshop and a link to other getting started resources.

If you have questions, please email us at ArchivesSpaceHome@lyrasis.org.
