At the SAA 2022 conference in Boston, members of the Visioning Access Systems (VAS) subgroup held an incubator session to discuss An Exploration of Access Systems: A Framework for Access Systems for Born-Digital Archival Materials and several questions related to access systems for born-digital archival materials. I'm pleased to announce that a summary of the session can be found at this link: https://osf.io/ty9sn.
Based on feedback that we received, VAS will be holding at least one Zoom-based discussion session to gather additional community feedback on our framework and access systems for born-digital archival materials. During the session(s), participants will discuss questions related to the framework and/or born-digital archival materials. Feedback gathered from the session(s) will be used to enhance our framework and ensure that it is truly community-centered and community-driven.
The session(s) will be held in April 2023. This invitation is open to any who are responsible for or interested in providing access to born-digital archival materials, regardless of their participation in our SAA 2022 session.
Please use this form to sign up and receive more information. The deadline to sign up is March 31, 2023. Please feel free to widely disseminate this message to those who you think would be interested in participating in the remote session.
