BHL Mellon Grant @ MMDP

The Bentley Historical Library and University of Michigan Library cohosted a gathering of the Mid-Michigan Digital Practitioners (MMDP) on March 26-27, 2015. This was the fifth biannual meeting of the group (for past agendas and presentations, click here), which was started by Ed Busch and his colleagues at Michigan State University (be sure to check out the great interview with Ed on the LOC Signal blog).

As the event host, the University of Michigan was given an opportunity to present on current projects and initiatives.  I gave an update on our "ArchivesSpace-Archivematica-DSpace Workflow Integration" project, highlighting our recent collaborations with Artefactual Systems and giving attendees an overview of our latest UML workflow diagram (version five) and a preview of an initial wireframe rendering of Archivematica's new appraisal and arrangement tab (which has already undergone some changes).

Check out my presentation slides here.  You can also view an introductory presentation on the project (delivered at the Sept. 18, 2014 meeting of the MMDP at Central Michigan University) here.

Video of the host presentation is also available on the University of Michigan Library website and includes a question and answer session with the audience.

For the host presentation, I was joined by my colleagues Matt Adair (Lead Archivist for Digitization, Bentley Historical Library) and Alix Keener (Digital Scholarship Librarian, University of Michigan Library); their respective presentations addressed the Bentley's implementation of the Aeon registration and reference request system and the upcoming symposium, Web Archives 2015: Capture, Curate, Analyze (check it out and submit a proposal before the May 15 deadline!!).
