ArchivesSpace User Topics Screencast Series

The ArchivesSpace User Screencast Series is designed to help ArchivesSpace users benefit from each other’s expertise in using the application for common tasks. It’s a fun way to supplement and extend the user manual provided to ArchivesSpace members. And as we are offering a $50 honorarium per video accepted for the series, it can be a little bit lucrative too!

If you would like to record a screencast for the series, please follow these basic steps. If you have any questions along the way, please contact Jessica Crouch (jessica.crouch@lyrasis.org) for help.
