ArchivesSpace and Airtable for Improved Workflow Management
Wednesday, December 11, 2019
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time)
The Archival Collections Management department at New York University Libraries recently implemented the cloud software Airtable for holistic workflow management to complement its use of ArchivesSpace as its system of record for archival holdings. This webinar, presented by Weatherly Stephan (Head of Archival Collections Management, NYU Libraries) and Rachel Searcy (Accessioning Archivist, NYU Libraries), will focus on the ways in which they use Airtable in conjunction with other systems to monitor backlogs, prioritize upcoming work, communicate the status of current projects to a broad group of stakeholders, and report statistics on their accessioning, arrangement and description, and other collections management activities.
Please join us as Weatherly and Rachel share how they have connected technological solutions to workflows in order to promote efficient collection management strategies.
The cost is $10 for SCA members; $5 for student members; and $20 for non-members. All registrants will receive a link to the webinar recording after the webinar is completed.
Weatherly Stephan is the Head of Archival Collections Management at NYU Libraries, a department responsible for preparing archival collections for research and long-term preservation. She also teaches archival description in the NYU Archives & Public History Program. Previously, Weatherly was the Librarian for Archival Arrangement & Description at NYU, and worked in processing positions at the New York Public Library’s Archives Unit and the Brooklyn Historical Society.
Rachel Searcy is the Accessioning Archivist and primary ArchivesSpace administrator at New York University Libraries, working in the Archival Collections Management department. Previously, Rachel held positions focused on processing, metadata, and digitization at NYU's Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives, and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.
