Registration is now open for the 7th 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.  While traditionally an in-person event, ArchivesSpace will be holding its seventh Annual Member Forum virtually.

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 instructional sessions and discussions 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.

When:  

Presentations, breakout discussions, and casual mixers will be held on August 2-4, 2021, and all individuals from ArchivesSpace member institutions are welcome to attend some or all of the sessions on these days.  Times vary by day so be sure to review the agenda and use the “find your local time” feature to confirm the event date and time for your region.   

Where:

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.

Registrations for each day are separate and you must register individually for all days/events you are interested in attending.  Registration information is linked above each event on the agenda.

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 https://forms.gle/7ru7pemTkshL2HDB9. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The last day that proposals will be accepted is July 16, 2021, and all notifications will be made by July 20, 2021. 

We will be recording the sessions on August 2 and 4, 2021, but will not be recording discussions or mixers. We encourage you to dip in and out of the live programs as much as you can. 

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