Explore the Archivists' Toolkit at METRO this Fall

This September, METRO and the Archivists Round Table will join forces to present a workshop essential to anyone interested in learning more about the Archivists' Toolkit.  Instructor Sibyl Schaefer will give attendees a closer look at this open source platform and how it can work for you.


Join us for this full-day workshop on the Archivists' Toolkit (AT), an open source application developed for tracking and describing special collections.  Learn the many advantages and added functionalities of using the AT in your work.  The AT incorporates integrated modules for accessioning, description, name and subject authority control, and location management and also provides customizable reports and standardized description exports such as EAD, MARCXML, and METS.  Topics include: creating accession records, creating multi-level description records, linking descriptions to authority records and locations, and generating EAD finding aids.

This workshop is made possible with funds from the Documentary Heritage Program of the New York State Archives, a program of the New York State Education Department.
