The deadline to apply for this program has been extended to May 20th. 


The ArchivesSpace Member Engagement sub-team is pleased to accept applications for the second cohort of the ArchivesSpace Member Match program. 

The Member Match program is an initiative to engage the ArchivesSpace membership community, created and organized by the Member Engagement sub-team of the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council, with support from the ArchivesSpace Community Engagement Coordinator. The program is intended to be a resource and venue for peer-to-peer support between ArchivesSpace members. For one, year-long term, participants will be matched with a member with whom they can receive and offer professional insight, advice, and camaraderie. The program will also offer participants the opportunity to engage in exclusive events and enlightening discussions about ArchivesSpace and its active user community. 

Thanks to valuable feedback from the first cohort of Member Match Participants, we’ve implemented the following updates to the program:

  • Monthly Listserv Discussion Topics
    • Each month, a member of the Member Engagement sub-team will reach out to the Member Match listserv to spur discussion and encourage continued engagement between matches.
  • Quarterly Member Match Meet-Ups
    • These will be opportunities for large group socializing as well as the potential for dedicated time to spend with matches in breakout rooms.
  • Option to participate in small group matches of 3 people
