These commonly used resources for implementing ArchivesSpace are being offering as a package for the purposes of this program, but participating institutions may decline individual items if they are not wanted. All ArchivesSpace Diversity Partners will be ArchivesSpace members for the duration of the program.
Eligible organizations include:
Eligible organizations cannot already be an ArchivesSpace member or client of a hosting provider. An organization also cannot be a unit of a parent institution that does not meet these criteria.
Responsibilities of ArchivesSpace
Provide, at no cost to the Partner, the implementation resources selected by the partner institution, which may include membership, hosting, training, user support and technical support. Resources will be provided according to the standard terms of these offerings.
Provide opportunities for partner institutions to connect with each other and others in the ArchivesSpace community.
Responsibilities of Partners
Actively work to implement ArchivesSpace at their institution.
Attend occasional ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership meetings and provide feedback about their experience implementing ArchivesSpace and participating in the ArchivesSpace member community. It is anticipated that all meetings will be online; travel support would be provided if a meeting were to be held in person.
All information held within a Partner’s ArchivesSpace implementation remains the sole property of the Partner, to be used or shared at their discretion only. Any information about progress of individual implementations of ArchivesSpace and any institution-specific data collected in meetings or feedback opportunities will be kept confidential.
There is a short Expression of Interest form to complete. The Expression of Interest asks for some information about the applicant institution and why becoming an ArchivesSpace Diversity Partner is of interest to them.
We expect to select and notify the cohort of Partners by May 1, 2021.
