Virtual Archives Space Instance

[January/2014 – May/2014]

I worked with a team to create a virtual ArchivesSpace repository using a real world sample of EAD, MARC, and CSV records, while conducting an evaluation of the system and writing a report based on our results. In working with the beta phase of the web based archival software, my team conducting tested both on the back and front end to create a virtual, and hopefully usable instance for both archivist and user. While there were certainly kinks in ArchivesSpace still being such a young system, our report reflects our optimism and hope for the future of archival management through updates to the software.
