Can one person be designated to digest all of this into a weekly report, please?

Thank you,

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] ArchivesSpace communication

Hello ArchivesSpace Members,

Thanks for the recent posts to the list and comments in other forums about ArchivesSpace communication. We really want to keep you informed and I hope you’ve noticed that we’ve made a number of efforts in the last year improve our communication. But, as of this writing, there are 242 member institutions and 4.6 (I’m part-time) of us on the Program Team, so we need your help to make sure the word gets out. The main ways to keep track of what’s going on with ArchivesSpace are:

•         Subscribe to the Users Group listserv (you’re already here, but anyone else from a member institution can subscribe via the main page for the listserv at http://lyralists.lyrasis.org/mailman/listinfo/archivesspace_users_group<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__lyralists.lyrasis.org_mailman_listinfo_archivesspace-5Fusers-5Fgroup&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=w0dJ_gZ7ADGD-lStnnJl1TS4NBmv3-v8vqYR0tL2opk&e=>)

•         Follow us on Twitter - @ArchivesSpace<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__twitter.com_ArchivesSpace&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=pu2hRK3YebCPQilhXTV_YI_CYp-8SoXv1L86Nt6uues&e=>

•         Check the wiki<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__wiki.archivesspace.org_&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=2l_IvYDLI5QBE3hlSNMpqMR7PUh6qIdsIHJX16MEvMc&e=> frequently – if you sign up for an account, you can watch particular pages and receive an email when they’re updated. As you know, a lot of the work of ArchivesSpace takes place via our volunteer Councils. The Technical Advisory Council and Users Advisory Council also have areas on the wiki to keep you informed of their activities.

•         Sign up for a Github account and watch our Github page<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_archivesspace_archivesspace&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=FvPvhS9TE_xRtv5B3cXdM-8WbRnvOzFPCg96WNudAZI&e=> for release and technical documentation updates. (You can also do this via an RSS or Atom feed if you prefer not to get a Github account.)

•         All our development work is tracked in JIRA<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__development.archivesspace.org_&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=2Wi_i6X4Wudp-9YRyHdVG3SR2BATp3-KLcJOSP8q33k&e=>, but we hope in the very near future to be able to send out via email a monthly development digest that condenses the activity in JIRA and undertaken by the Feature Prioritization subgroup of the Councils to give you a more succinct sense of what’s going on and what’s coming up development-wise. Let us know whether you’d find something like that useful and what you’d like it to include.

•         People who are really into the nitty gritty of development can also join our developers’ twice weekly standups<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__archivesspace.atlassian.net_wiki_display_ADC_Standups&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=TNAVYhI8X8N92fEZs-rBgmX7jwSK4Iu6hsenh_y6oFQ&e=> or connect with them via IRC<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__archivesspace.atlassian.net_wiki_display_ADC_IRC&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=U0_BF7l8XEeyvPJ5mgabdVFuIsL3oAH02jerQ7Ky3xw&e=>.

•         And then, of course, we have our website<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__archivesspace.org_&d=BQMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=wwc_Z_TbmWbPFh7My2zRxmrGgCNO-71Fwzlmd8YZVUY&m=MZIW4TUU9__6V6EDw9h0-0cyS7aXGZ-2Y3U1Odybgew&s=N5vKxIaGPUpY-pu22ts86pSHVVZwmpOCngpal7oO-ZE&e=> for basic information about ArchivesSpace and ArchivesSpace membership. It’s more static than our other channels, but an important tool for introducing ArchivesSpace to those who are just starting their explorations as well as giving us all the same baseline of information.

This may seem like a lot of different channels, but they reflect the different types of activity within the ArchivesSpace program and the different audiences that have an interest in what’s going on. If you have other ideas about ways we can best communicate with you and your colleagues, and ways all of us in the community as a whole can best communicate with each other, we’d love to hear from you. Please drop me a line or get a discussion going here on the list.
