Good afternoon,

Spaces are available for an ArchivesSpace workshop at the University of Nebraska at Omaha's Criss Library on November 6-7, 2014. Instructors will be Brad Westbrook from ArchivesSpace and Nancy Enneking from the Getty Research Institute.

The fee for the two-day workshop is $165 per person, which will include a boxed lunch. Please complete the form at http://goo.gl/forms/gu62J7ut5o to reserve your seat for the workshop. Directions on paying for the registration will be sent separately.

Information is provided below about a few hotels near campus, parking, and just a few bits of other Omaha information (including free beer). If you are staying at one of the Aksarben Village hotels, note that the UNO shuttle does make stops about every 15 minutes on UNO's adjacent Pacific campus. While UNO ID is not required to ride the shuttle, I would suggest not specifically telling the driver that you are not a UNO student or staff when boarding.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
