Many of you have asked that we extend the deadline submission to the 2017 Ontario Archival Accession Registry (OAAR). We are happy to announce that we have extended submission to the OAAR till March 23.
The Archives Association of Ontario would like to invite each and every institution in the province that collects archival records to contribute to the 2017 edition of the Ontario Archival Accessions Register (OAAR). Just like last year, we are asking repositories to submit basic details on new accessions by completing the attached reporting form. We hope to build on last year’s pilot survey by encouraging even more institutions to participate, whether they are currently AAO members or not. The aim is to cast the net widely and capture the most comprehensive snapshot of archival collecting possible.
Please use the form available on the OAAR page to report material legally acquired by your institution in the calendar year 2017. Completed forms should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline to submit responses is Friday, March 23, 2018. The collected data will be made available on the AAO’s website during Archives Awareness Week in April.
Background information and FAQs on the OAAR and the Provincial Acquisition Strategy of which it forms a part can be found on the AAO website.
