The AAO’s Professional Development Committee presents
Getting Started with Archeion
Is your institution an AAO member? If yes - you have access to the Archeion service.
Archeion is Ontario’s Archival Information Network - it is both a directory of Ontario archives institutions as well as a discovery portal for researchers to search across participating institutions’ archival descriptions.
Archeion makes use of the Access to Memory (AtoM) archival description platform. AAO institutional members have access to free editor accounts in Archeion to begin adding their institution and archival descriptions to the shared, multi-repository Archeion AtoM instance. Using Archeion can be a very cost effective way for archives to gain access to AtoM to better manage archival descriptions and make holdings available for discovery.
Kelli Babcock, the AAO’s Archeion Coordinator, will present this two hour “Getting Started with Archeion” virtual workshop based on the freely available Getting Started With Archeion training slide deck. The workshop will go over all the basics of planning on how to use Archeion, setting up your institution, and different contexts and methods for adding descriptions into AtoM, along with tips for creating authority records and subject, genre, and name access points. The session will conclude with a question and answer period and advice about how to find Archeion and AtoM additional information and asynchronous training.
The session is appropriate for anyone new to AtoM as well as institutional members who want an Archeion refresh or advice and tips about using Archeion. All active Archeion institutions are encouraged to attend for a refresher on the service.
We hope to see you there!
