The next webinar in the Integrations with ArchivesSpace series will be Tuesday, May 12, at 2pm ET. Each webinar in this series highlights an integration with another application used in archives that ArchivesSpace members have worked on or requested.
Our eighth webinar in this series will discuss integration with ArcLight. ArcLight is a community-based effort to build an open source Blacklight-based environment to support discovery and delivery of archival material, led by Stanford Libraries.
When: May 12, 2020
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. – noon PT)
In order to provide a secure webinar experience and ensure adequate space in our Zoom environment, registration is now required for our webinars. Our webinars continue to be free and open to anyone using or interested in ArchivesSpace.
This webinar will be recorded and made available on the ArchivesSpace YouTube channel.
In this webinar, Mark A. Matienzo, Assistant Director for Digital Strategy and Access at the Stanford University Libraries, will provide background on the ArcLight project, its features, and how it aligns with and is distinctive from ArchivesSpace. Since 2015, the ArcLight project has had an extensive design phase and two software development work cycles, with contributions from over 40 people and over 9 institutions. In their position at Stanford, Mark manages the digital library discovery, access, and delivery portfolio and a team of software engineers and user experience designers. Prior to joining Stanford, Mark worked as an archivist, technologist, and strategist specializing in born-digital materials and metadata management, at institutions including the Digital Public Library of America, Yale University Library, The New York Public Library, and the American Institute of Physics.
Gregory Wiedeman, University Archivist in the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections & Archives at the University at Albany, SUNY, will discuss UAlbany’s integration of ArchivesSpace and ArcLight. UAlbany implemented ArcLight in March 2019 to provide access to archival description. This instance relies on integrations with ArchivesSpace for creating and managing description, and Hyrax for providing access to digital objects. Greg will overview why UAlbany chose this direction before briefly diving into the details on how UAlbany’s integration works. Finally, he will discuss what is working well with these systems and what still needs improvement. In his position at UAlbany, Greg helps ensure long-term access to the school’s public records. He oversees collecting, processing, and reference for the University Archives and supports the implementation and development of the department’s archival systems.
