Nominations Sought for ArchivesSpace Technical Advisory Council

The ArchivesSpace Board of Trustees is seeking nominations from its Charter Members for the ArchivesSpace Technical  Advisory Council (TAC).  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 TAC and who are capable of participating on a regular basis throughout the term of service.  TAC is a critical part of the ArchivesSpace community, having responsibility for providing overall technical guidance to code committers, the User Advisory Council, and the ArchivesSpace Board of Trustees.  Some of the activities currently planned for TAC are:

*        developing a community of committers, including provision of guidelines for contributing code and review of contributions,

*        reviewing application enhancements and priorities identified by the User Advisory Council,

*        documenting and assisting with resolving bugs identified in the application,

*        identifying integration points for ArchivesSpace with other systems (e.g. digital asset management systems, patron and request management systems, etc.) and developing technical requirements to undertake that integration,

*        undertaking release management for new versions of the software, and

*        updating technical documentation.
Sub-working groups will be established within TAC to address the areas identified above, as well other activity areas identified later.  Nominees must have sufficient knowledge of application architectures and coding practices for participating in and leading some of the identified activities. Nominees with experience in web application development (particularly using Ruby on Rails and Sinatra) and software testing, or interest in those areas, are especially welcome.

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.

To nominate a person for the ArchivesSpace Technical Advisory Council, please identify the person and her/his organization in the form below, indicate the areas of activity to which the nominee is prepared to contribute, and return the completed form to Brad Westbrook (brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org<mailto:brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org>) by the end of Friday, December 6.
