Please note: Because this workshop is being offered at a reduced price through special grant funding to support local collecting institutions, registration will be limited to those currently working in not-for-profit organizations that hold, collect, and make available the state's historical records. Also, only one representative from each institution will be admitted, so please coordinate registrations accordingly.
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 to be covered include:
- Creating accession records
- Creating multi-level description records
- Linking descriptions to authority records and locations
- Generating EAD finding aids
This event was made possible with funds from the Documentary Heritage Program of the New York State Archives, a program of the New York State Education Department.
