Renovating Foundations: Archives Space and Collections Management

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Often due to their unique resources, archival repositories operate alongside libraries in providing access to materials. This is true of the Archives & Special Collections at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries. The presenters feature ArchivesSpace as a collection management tool that provides access to primary source materials. Collection management is an essential component of the discovery process for archive patrons and of equal importance to repository staff who serve multiple constituencies. Specifically, the presenters will discuss the implementation of ArchivesSpace and standards associated with description and metadata that lead to access and use of primary source materials, including documents, photographs, born-digital materials, and associated resources. Archival collection management tools operate similarly to a library catalog for public access, however, they also provide essential information for describing, housing, locating, and managing archival collections.  As an open access program, ArchivesSpace allows customization and the presenters will show how changes made to the installation aligns it to their repository needs. They will also discuss reliance on metadata development, migration, and development of processes to enhance use, understanding, and interoperability for all formats of materials.
