Call for Presenters!

SeaAA will be hosting a workshop on ArchivesSpace on February 9 from 2 – 4 pm at the University of Washington. As many of our members work for institutions transitioning from Archivists’ Toolkit and Archon to AS, this workshop is aimed at helping those in different phases in the transition learn from one another about their experiences. At this time, we are looking for members from two other institutions who would be willing to participate in a panel discussion and share their specific experiences (via powerpoint and/or demonstration via ArchivesSpace, if possible) so that we have many different perspectives. If this is something you or someone from your institution would be interested in doing, please let us know at
seattle.area.archivists@gmail.com.
After the panel presentation, we will allow time for questions from the panel and general discussion among the workshop participants. Please consider joining our panel and help your fellow members in their transition to ArchivesSpace!
