We are about to start looking at this and would certainly be interested in discussing with others.  We will have a new member of staff working in this area from next week so I will ask her to make contact in due course.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Describing Born-Digital Materials in ArchivesSpace

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 welcomed.

Many thanks,

Kate Tasker
