The Archival Integration Team at SAA2016

The Bentley's ArchivesSpace-Archivematica-DSpace Workflow Integration project team will be out in full force at the Society of American Archivist's Annual Meeting in Atlanta next week, where we'll be talking about some of the topics we've written about in detail on this blog, including our ArchivesSpace/Archivematica integration work, implementing new systems, preparing legacy description for migration to ArchivesSpace, and appraising digital content.

Be sure to add some of the following to your sched and stop by to get up-to-date information about our project or just to say hello!

ArchivesSpace Member Forum - I will be presenting on ArchivesSpace and Archivematica integration, particularly focusing on the ArchivesSpace pane in the new Archivematica Appraisal and Arrangement tab, some of the decisions we've made about creating and editing ArchivesSpace archival objects and structuring ArchivesSpace digital objects in Archivematica, and planned future enhancements (such as modifications to the ArchivesSpace Rights Statements module to facilitate mapping Archivematica PREMIS Rights to ArchivesSpace) during the "ArchivesSpace Integrations - A Status Report and Look Ahead" session.
Archivematica Users Group - Mike and I will be giving a brief presentation about and demonstration of the current Archivematica Appraisal and Arrangement tab.
Aquisitions and Appraisal Section - Mike will be discussing the appraisal of born-digital content as part of a "discussion with several panelists who respond to an appraisal- and acquisitions-related scenario."
Graduate Student Poster Presentations - Devon will be presenting a poster on his contributions to our (recently completed!) project cleaning, reconciling, and ultimately "Preparing Legacy Finding Aids for Ingest into ArchivesSpace."
Session 506: You Are Not Alone! Navigating the Implementation of New Archival Systems - Max will be talking about our ArchivesSpace implementation (there will also be presentations about Archivematica implementation during this session)
Reference, Access, and Outreach Section - Max will be showcasing (along with our colleagues Cinda and Melissa) some of the ways in which the Bentley provides access to digital content in the RAO's Marketplace of Ideas.
