Registration is now open for the 6th Annual ArchivesSpace Member Forum!

Just as in previous years, this will be a free opportunity for staff from ArchivesSpace member institutions to meet and share information with each other and the program team about all things ArchivesSpace.  Unlike previous years, ArchivesSpace will be holding its sixth Annual Member Forum virtually, on August 3-7, 2020, from 12pm-3pm ET each day via Zoom.

This free event is a chance for ArchivesSpace members to come together to highlight the work they are doing in ArchivesSpace, show off new plugins or tools they’ve developed, and attend workshops and trainings on a variety of topics. As with our previous Annual Member Forums, it is being held in conjunction with the Society of American Archivists annual meeting, but it is not part of SAA and does not require registration for the SAA Annual Meeting.


Presentations and breakout discussions will be held on August 3-4, 2020 from 12pm-3pm ET, and all individuals from ArchivesSpace member institutions are welcome to attend some or all of the sessions on these days.  Small workshops covering specific elements of the ArchivesSpace application will be offered August 5-7, 2020 from 12pm-3pm ET.  These workshops will be limited in capacity. Registrations for each day are separate and you must register for individually for all days you are interested in attending.


All online via Zoom, with opportunities to join via computer or phone.

Who Can Attend:

The ArchivesSpace Member Forum is open to individuals from ArchivesSpace member institutions only. To register, you must use an institutional email address associated with an ArchivesSpace member institution.  Registrations using personal email addresses and addresses associated with non-member institutions will not be accepted.  This means that events with limited capacity may fill before you are able to correct your registration.

Online registration:

Registrations for each day of the Forum are separate. You will need to register for each day you are interested in attending to guarantee your spot. Registration for each activity is linked above the session in the agenda.  Workshop attendance is limited.

Discussion sessions on Tuesday, August 4, will occur in two separate zoom rooms.  You must register for both Zoom Room A and B if you want to attend discussions in both rooms.

The number of registrations available for the workshops on August 5-7 is limited.  The total number of attendees is noted next to the registration. To give as many people as possible a chance to attend, you may register for only one workshop.

Propose a session or topic:

The program is still developing. If you would like to propose a session or topic for the forum, there is a short Google form for proposals available at Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The last day that proposals will be accepted is July 15, 2020, and all notifications will be made by July 22, 2020.

We will be recording the sessions on August 3, 2020 but will not be recording discussions or workshops. We encourage you to dip in and out of the live programs on August 3-4, 2020 as much as you can.

Please feel free to contact ArchivesSpace Community Engagement Coordinator Jessica Crouch ( with questions. We look forward to seeing many of you there!
