Hello, ASpace Implementers!

We are excited to start accessioning and describing our born-digital
collections in ArchivesSpace, and expect that some of you have also started
or are contemplating this process. We're eager to develop our guidelines
and workflows to reflect and contribute to emerging community practices,
and to have a conversation around this work.

If your institution is using ASpace to manage born-digital materials, would
you be willing to discuss some of your experiences and procedures, either
on- or off-list?

In particular, we are looking at strategies for using Resource Records to
describe mixed analog/digital collections and to manage multiple types of
digital records within one collection (email, website, images, text files,
etc.). We're also exploring how we can use Events to track disk imaging,
migrations, fixity checks, and other digital preservation actions.

Any thoughts, suggestions, recommended resources, or examples would be

Many thanks,
