Beginning in April of 2021, the ArchivesSpace Trainers Corps will offer regularly scheduled virtual, community-wide training opportunities open to anyone using or interested in using ArchivesSpace.
These virtual, community-wide trainings will be part of a 12-month pilot project by the Trainers Corps to assess community interest and training needs.
Over the next year, the Trainers Corps will offer the scheduled trainings and office hours described below. Registration for each training will be separate and registration will open closer to each training date. Trainings and office hours with open registration are indicated below.
During this pilot period, all trainings will be offered at no charge to the attendee. Anyone using or interested in ArchivesSpace may attend. Registration for each training or “office hour” will be separate and registration for each will open closer to the scheduled date of the event. Registration will be limited to 100 individuals for all trainings and 500 individuals for all “office hours.”
When registration is opened for a training it will be announced via the ArchivesSpace member listservs first. For the first 48 hours, registration will be open only to individuals from ArchivesSpace member institutions. After 48 hours, any remaining registrations will be made available to all ArchivesSpace users and will be announced via the ArchivesSpace twitter and blog.
In order to make training available to as many organizations and users as possible, registration will be limited to three (3) attendees per organization for virtual trainings.Registration for “office hours” will not be limited by organization.
Community-wide Virtual Training
The community-wide virtual trainings offered over the next 12 months will offer users the opportunity to attend trainings related to a variety of ArchivesSpace topics. While these trainings are offered free of charge, attendees are expected to fulfill the following responsibilities:

Confirm in advance of your training that Zoom connection information and all resource links work as expected on the computer or laptop you will be using for the workshop. The use of tablets and cell phones during this workshop is discouraged. We cannot provide technical assistance to individuals using tablets or cell phones during these workshops.
Attend all live sessions.
Actively participate in live sessions, including unmuting and asking questions or interacting via the Zoom chat feature.
Complete all “homework” (if applicable) in advance of each live session, including reviewing video recordings and completing exercises.

Virtual “Office Hours”
The Virtual “Office Hours” offered over the next 12 months will offer users the opportunity to see a quick demo or walkthrough of one area of the application by members of the ArchivesSpace Trainers Corps. These office hours will not be recorded but notes will be provided after the discussion. Following the brief presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topic. Once those run out we will answer questions submitted via the submission form and if time allows, questions on the fly. If you would like to suggest a topic for a future “Office Hour,” you can do so at https://forms.gle/unz3GmAbWwvpHjSr7.
