We are gathering up and testing development work in anticipation of the next release. New development is always up on our test server at https://test.archivesspace.org/staff/. We’ll have information in June to share about the timing for the release.
ArchivesSpace is developed by and for the community that uses it, and strengthened by services and activities that support our community and connect us to one another. As we close another membership year, we want to give a special thanks to all of the institutions that have joined us as members. ArchivesSpace membership is our primary source of revenue and informs and sustains every aspect of the program, including software development, support and engagement. Thanks for all that your support makes possible.
ArchivesSpace membership renewals for 2022-2023 have been sent to all current members. If you have any questions, or if you would like to join as a new member for the 2022-2023 membership year, please let us know at ArchivesSpaceHome@lyrasis.org. We look forward to another year working together.
