Greetings archival community of Ontario!
You are invited to contribute to the 2018 edition of the Ontario Archival Accessions Register (OAAR). As in previous years, we are asking repositories to submit basic details on new accessions by completing the attached reporting form. We hope to continue building on the last two years’ surveys 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. We’re planning to use the three years’ worth of data to begin some analysis work on collecting patterns and trends, so the bigger the response rate the better.
Please use the attached form to report material legally acquired by your institution in the calendar year 2018. Completed forms should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org T
he deadline to submit responses is Friday, March 1st, 2019. 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.
