The New Jersey State Library is leading the New Jersey Collections Care Network, a two-year initiative to address urgent collections care needs in New Jersey through educational programs and training. Intended to reach collections care professionals and volunteers, these programs will encourage the use of best practices, support targeted fundraising and marketing, increase the use of existing resources, and accelerate the development of collaborative strategies.
ArchivesSpace combines the best features of Archon and Archivists' Toolkit, providing archivists with a next-generation open source collection management tool. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the project team has developed a technical platform, governance structure and service model that will provide the archival community with a cutting-edge, extensible, and sustainable platform for describing analog and born-digital archival materials. This two-day session will provide attendees with the means to better manage and provide access to collections. Hands-on training offers the opportunity to work directly with the application.
