Webinar Description:
Vakil Smallen, International Brotherhood of Teamsters Labor History Archivist at George Washington University, will walk through the steps of a workflow developed at GWU for batch editing barcodes in ArchivesSpace through the API. As a person with a limited technical background, Vakil will discuss how he found a solution to a common problem using tools previously unknown to him. He’ll offer ideas for others to get confidence and learn more when wading into similarly unfamiliar waters.

Webinar Resources:
Vakil originally highlighted this workflow in a blog post for the Research Libraries Section of SAA. <https://www2.archivists.org/groups/research-libraries-section/step-by-step-instructions-for-batch-editing-barcodes-in-archivessp>  There he includes all programs and resources he used in this process.

Vakil will be using Python 3.7 in Jupyter Notebook as available in the Anaconda suite<ttps://www.anaconda.com/distribution/> and OpenRefine<http://openrefine.org/> in this demonstration.

The Python scripts used in this webinar are posted to GitHub and available here:




 Vakil Smallen is the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Labor History Archivist at George Washington University, a position he has held since April 2019. Before that, he was the National Education Association Project Archivist at George Washington University for 8 years. He received his MLS from the University of Maryland. Vakil's undergraduate degree was in English Literature and Language.

Who should attend:
Anyone interested in seeing a demonstration of a process for batch editing barcodes through the API.  This webinar may be particularly useful for archivists who do not have a deep technical background and are looking for a simple workflow for making batch edits.
