Webinar Q&A

ArchivesSpace will be offering another webinar focusing on ArchivesSpace data cleanup projects that can be accomplished in a work from home environment on Wednesday, July 8, 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.

Title:  Is It Roy E. Harrington or Roy S. Harrington?: How to Make Technology Work for You In an ArchivesSpace Data Cleanup Project
When: July 8, 2020
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. – 12:00pm PT)
Where: Zoom
Registration: https://lyrasis.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_T5x0GFR8QHicozJwCsm05Q

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.

Webinar description:

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

Three processing archivists from the Rockefeller Archive Center will discuss collaborative approaches to mass data cleanup in ArchivesSpace. Presenters will share how they planned, reassessed, and executed various automated and manual processes for enhancing the quality of their institution’s descriptive data. This data includes agent records, dates, and access restriction notes. This discussion is based off of the RAC ArchivesSpace Cleanup blog series.

Webinar presenters:

Amy Berish is an Archivist at the Rockefeller Archive Center where she works as a member of the Processing team. Aside from processing incoming collections, she also contributes to various digital projects. Amy holds a Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh.

Katie Martin is an Assistant Archivist at the Rockefeller Archive Center where she processes collections of the Ford Foundation and works on projects with the digital team.

Who should attend:

While this webinar will focus on projects that can be undertaken in a work from home environment, this webinar will be useful to any archivist focusing on data cleanup in ArchivesSpace, those needing to export data out of ArchivesSpace and archivists working with legacy data.
