Hello ArchivesSpace members,
In the coming months, we're going to be putting out calls for participation in some limited time and scope working groups to make recommendations in particular areas. These will supplement the great work being done by our User Advisory Council and Technical Advisory Council, and their associated subteams.
 The first working group is for people interested in reviewing and revising the digital object exports (Dublin Core, MODS, METS) in ArchivesSpace. The charge for the group is to:

*         Identify a set of recommended data elements for each type of digital object export currently supported by ArchivesSpace

*         Prepare data maps that indicate the recommended data elements for each and identify places where the current export does not meet the recommendations
It's possible that, after the initial task is complete, the scope of work could be broadened, including identifying whether there are additional digital object exports that should be supported. The first task, however, is to review and revise the data maps for the existing exports, which will provide us with the specification information we need in order to work with developers on making changes in the application. Once this group has been assembled we'll talk more specifically about timelines, but the hope is that the group's initial work would be completed by the end of April.
If you are interested in participating in this group, or know a colleague who should be included, please email me by March 1. Also, if you have questions or suggestions for other working groups (next on the list is a group to evaluate the MARCXML import and export), please don't hesitate to get in touch.
