Beginning in April of 2021, the ArchivesSpace Trainers Corps will offer regularly scheduled virtual, community-wide training opportunities open to anyone using or interested in using ArchivesSpace.

These virtual, community-wide trainings will be part of a 12-month pilot project by the Trainers Corps to assess community interest and training needs.

Over the next year, the Trainers Corps will offer regularly scheduled trainings and office hours covering a variety of topics on all things ArchivesSpace.  Registration for each training will be separate and registration will open closer to each training date. Information about this training program is available at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/2331148319/ArchivesSpace+Community-Wide+Virtual+Training.

All community-wide virtual trainings will be recorded.  These recordings can be found via the Getting Started section of the ArchivesSpace website.

During this pilot period, all trainings will be offered at no charge to the attendee. Anyone using or interested in ArchivesSpace may attend.  Registration for each training or “office hour” will be separate and registration for each will open closer to the scheduled date of the event.  Registration will be limited to 100 individuals for all trainings and 500 individuals for all “office hours.”

When registration is opened for a training it will be announced via the ArchivesSpace member listservs first.  For the first 48 hours, registration will be open only to individuals from ArchivesSpace member institutions. After 48 hours, any remaining registrations will be made available to all ArchivesSpace users and will be announced via the ArchivesSpace twitter and blog.

In order to make training available to as many organizations and users as possible, registration will be limited to three (3) attendees per organization for virtual trainings. Registration for “office hours” will not be limited by organization.

Registration is currently open for the first ArchivesSpace Office Hour on April 19th at 2pm ET/11am PT. This office hour will offer a demonstration of how to create a thumbnail image of a digital object in the ArchivesSpace Public User Interface. Following the brief presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topic. Once those run out we will answer questions submitted via the submission form and if time allows, questions on the fly.  If you would like to suggest a topic for a future “Office Hour,” you can do so at https://forms.gle/unz3GmAbWwvpHjSr7.
