ArchivesSpace will be offering a 90-minute webinar on ArchivesSpace data cleanup on Wednesday, May 6, at 2pm ET. Most of us are doing our jobs under much different conditions than usual. As a browser-based system you can access from anywhere, ArchivesSpace is a tool that can be used when working remotely and many ArchivesSpace users are finding themselves executing large scale data cleanup projects that have only recently been prioritized. This webinar will highlight tools, workflows and data cleanup projects developed by members of the ArchivesSpace member community that may prove helpful to users developing their own data cleanup projects.
When: May 6, 2020
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. – 12:30pm 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.
ArchivesSpace users from a variety of institutions will explain metadata remediation and maintenance projects at their institutions, and offer tools and strategies for working with duplicate records, legacy description and non-standard metadata, and renumbering and adding information to boxes and folders (i.e. top containers and sub containers). Projects to be discussed include name authority remediation, addressing duplicate agent and subject records, improving date metadata and uploading EAD finding aids while managing staff working in ArchivesSpace remotely.
