Dear ArchivesSpace Users,

The deadline for participation in the ArchivesSpace Inclusive Examples Project has been extended until the end of day today, April 1, 2022. We are particularly interested in receiving examples of the record types indicated with an asterisk in the list below.

In the wake of the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor murders, and in the spirit of protest that followed, the ArchivesSpace community began a conversation about what it could do to promote diversity and inclusion while combating systemic racism in our field. That continuing conversation has led to a series of initiatives<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/1737261057> that we will undertake in the coming years, including an Inclusive Examples project<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/3053748225/Inclusive+Examples+Project>.

For this important project, ArchivesSpace is delighted to be working with Brittany Newberry of Georgia State University to update the examples provided in its workshop materials and test databases. We want the examples to be more representative of the diverse institutions that use ArchivesSpace.

We are interested in adding examples from the ArchivesSpace user community. Below is a list of record types and collection types for which we are looking. In addition, we have created an agreement<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TkNNuGKsb2BinuG-8HpJxMDrzCsNK9EP/edit?rtpof=true&sd=true> to provide information and expectations for how the data shared will be used.

If you are interested in participating, please email a signed agreement<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TkNNuGKsb2BinuG-8HpJxMDrzCsNK9EP/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=100746195909280994463&rtpof=true&sd=true> and the records you'd like to share in one of the formats listed. Email ArchivesSpaceHome at lyrasis.org<mailto:ArchivesSpaceHome at lyrasis.org> by Friday, April 1 and we will forward your submission to Brittany Newberry for review. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
