The next ArchivesSpace webinar will be a 90-minute learning opportunity on February 9th at 2:00p.m. ET/11:00a.m. PT led by Regine Heberlein, Library IT Data Analyst at Princeton University, and Christine Di Bella, ArchivesSpace Program Manager, demonstrating how to create valid EAC-CPF records using ArchivesSpace and offering some tips and tricks for making the process easier within your repository.
Date: February 9, 2022
Time: 2:00p.m. – 3:30p.m. ET (11:00a.m. – 12:30pm PT)
This webinar will be recorded and made available on the ArchivesSpace YouTube channel.
The recent expansion of the agents module in ArchivesSpace greatly expanded the application’s support for the metadata standard Encoded Archival Context – Corporate Bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF) and the potential for exchanging these records with other systems, including Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC). Taking full advantage of this potential requires some work on the record creator’s part as ArchivesSpace’s requirements for creating agent records remain minimal.
This learning opportunity will demonstrate how to create valid EAC-CPF records using ArchivesSpace and offer some tips and tricks for making the process easier within your repository.
An open discussion and Q&A will follow.
This learning opportunity introduces EAC-CPF in the context of ArchivesSpace but is not intended to be a full overview of the standard. Resources for learning more about EAC-CPF include:
- Encoded Archival Standards: A Primer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYWQeBRnhz0
- EAC-CPF Community and Support page: https://eac.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/community-and-mailinglist/
- EAC-CPF Tag Library: https://eac.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/schemata-and-tag-library/
NOTE: This learning opportunity assumes basic knowledge of ArchivesSpace, including an understanding of agent records. If you do not have this, we recommend watching the videos of the Basics workshop series, available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3cxupmXL7WiHyMc0uFmsCEIVOQmrI7FL. We will not be able to answer general questions about ArchivesSpace or specific questions about individual ArchivesSpace implementations during this session.
Who should attend:
Anyone interested in using ArchivesSpace to create valid EAC-CPF records.
