Archeion workshops update (and request for feedback)

23 Mar 2012 4:27 PM | Danielle Robichaud

Archeion_workshopArchivists around the province have been attending the 'Archeion for Archivists' workshops this month. More than 60 people have been introduced to the process of uploading information to the new Archeion system through these events, which were made possible by funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

One of the immediate results of the workshops has been a small explosion of content in the Archeion site: the new system is much easier to update than the old one and archivists have enthusiastically seized the oppurtunity of updating their old descriptions and adding new ones.

The new Archeion also allows for the upload of digital objects and there are already a fair number of images associated with archival descriptions on the site, including city coats of arms, portraits of individuals, and street scenes, such as this postcard of the Canadian Pacific Railway station in Woodbridge, Ontario, from the Vaughan Township Historical Society fonds of the City of Vaughan Archives.

If you attended one of the Archeion workshops, we'd be grateful if you could fill in a short (only 6 questions!) feedback form to help us plan for future Archeion training events.
