Nominations Sought for ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council

The ArchivesSpace Board of Trustees is seeking nominations from its Charter Members for the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council (UAC).  Nominations may be made only by ArchivesSpace Charter Member representatives.  Charter member representatives are encouraged to nominate persons from their institution or from other Charter Member institutions (please see  the list below) who are experienced with some of the activities projected for UAC and who are capable of participating on a regular basis throughout the term of service.  UAC is a critical part of the ArchivesSpace community, serving as a communication conduit between ArchivesSpace governance groups and ArchivesSpace users.  It is also the group that administers ArchivesSpace user services.  Some of the activities currently planned for UAC are:

*        liaising with national and regional archives organizations;

*        soliciting, suggesting, gathering requirements for, and prioritizing enhancements to the ArchivesSpace application;

*        maintaining and updating user documentation, as needed, of the ArchivesSpace application;

*        conducting usability studies, including analyzing and reporting results;

*        developing and providing training to users; and

*        advising the Board of Trustees and LYRASIS on the design and delivery of user services, including but not limited to help desk support, training, and presentation of documentation.
Sub-working groups will be established within UAC to address the areas identified above, as well other activity areas identified later.  Nominees will be appointed to UAC according to their ability to participate in and lead some of the activities mentioned above.

The initial term of service is until June 30, 2015.  Each appointee is eligible to have their appointment renewed for an additional two-year term, i.e., July 1, 2015-June 30, 2017.

The anticipated time commitment for each appointee is expected to be two hours per week on average.
