Webinar description:

In this webinar, Jane Anderson of New York University and Co-Director of Local Contexts will give an introduction to the Local Contexts initiative and newly launched Local Contexts Hub.  Local Contexts is an initiative offering digital strategies for Indigenous communities, institutions, and researchers through the TK (Traditional Knowledge) & BC (Biocultural) Labels and Notices. Local Contexts is focused on increasing Indigenous involvement in data governance through the integration of Indigenous values into data systems. 

After, ArchivesSpace community member Joshua Shaw will demonstrate the Local Contexts integration plugin he developed that integrates Local Contexts Labels and Notices with ArchivesSpace. Feedback from the ArchivesSpace community would be appreciated to ensure that the plugin works for a variety of institutions. Feature requests, bug reports, or suggestions for changes are encouraged. Exports (EAD, EAD3, and MARCXML) are of special interest and suggestions for improvement would be very welcome.
