Greetings, ArchivesSpace community!

I wanted to draw your attention to a number of exciting projects that we've
added to the Integrations and Other Community Projects
page on the ArchivesSpace wiki.

*ArchivesSpace/CollectionSpace Search/Authorities/Tagging *(Litchfield
Historical Society)

   - Create a user friendly public interface that will provide patrons with
   a single search portal for the society’s instances of ArchivesSpace and
   - Integrate social tagging with both databases to enable researchers to
   add detail to descriptions, as well as create a single external authority
   file source that will be shared between the databases.
   - Share tools with the open-source community via GitHub; documentation
   will be made available to facilitate implementation at other institutions
   using these systems.

CalTech Archives Integration Tools <http://github.com/caltechlibrary/cait>
(CalTech Library)

   - *cait* is a go library wrapping the ArchivesSpace REST API
   - Includes support for content export, static site generation, indexing
   and independent search engine and web service.
   - Manage your content in ArchivesSpace but read and search the public
   content independent of the status of ArchivesSpace itself.
   - Gives you more options for deployment as well as providing a clean
   separation of concerns for public/admin uses.

*EADChecker* <https://github.com/harvard-library/archivesspace-checker>
(Harvard Library)

Allows archivists to check whether there are issues with their finding aid
that would prevent it from ingesting correctly into ArchivesSpace.

*ArchivesSpace Preprocessor*
<https://github.com/harvard-library/archivesspace-preprocessor> (Harvard

A preprocessor which can run over a large corpus, find and track problems
in EAD, and produce amended EAD files to be ingested into ArchivesSpace.

Be sure to check out the wiki or the project's code/documentation for more
detailed information. As always, please let us know what you're working on
using the ArchivesSpace Integrations Information

Thank you!
