ArchivesSpace users often have a number of needs related to their implementations of the application. We have recently seen an uptick in requests for consulting and other services, with inquiries ranging from wanting onsite help with installing the application, migrating data from a legacy database like Filemaker or a homegrown system, custom interface work, or one-on-one user training/tutorials. Often these requests come from people who are not interested in hosting options, or cannot pursue bringing a full workshop with an organized group to their regional area.

The ArchivesSpace program manages a training program that provides instruction to groups. However, if you find that you require extensive or individualized assistance with your ArchivesSpace instance, we can provide you with an informal list of individuals who are interested in providing consulting services related to ArchivesSpace.

Please note: Independent consultants are not on the ArchivesSpace program team. The registry is intended to be a resource to help connect people interested in services with people who may be able to provide them.

Interested in finding a consultant?

If you find that you are in need of some extra help with your ArchivesSpace instance and are interested in working with a consultant, please email us at for a list of potential consultants.

Please note: The consulting work itself is not managed by the ArchivesSpace program – consultants and prospective clients would work out any details about the scope of work, deliverables, and compensation amongst themselves.

Other types of inquiries

For companies and other larger efforts, we have a Registered Service Provider program which provides additional benefits. You can also see a current list of our Registered Service Providers if you are looking for help beyond what membership or independent consultants can provide.
