Association of Newfoundland and Labrador Archives
presents a 1 day workshop
Joining ARC-ANLA: Adding your archival holdings to the provincial database

Instructor: Mary Ellen Wright, ANLA’s Professional Development and Outreach Officer
Location: Trinity Historical Society Archives
Date/Time: February 27, 2014, 9-4 p.m. Lunch is included in the registration fee

This workshop will explore what’s involved in making your archival descriptions available on ANLA’s recently-launched ARC-ANLA on-line database of descriptions. ARC-ANLA is ANLA’s Archival Records Catalogue (ARC), a new portal to descriptions of archival records across the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The database of collections is an ongoing project, so check back frequently to find new additions. ARC-ANLA is powered by open source ICA-AtoM software and is hosted by Artefactual Systems.

The workshop will include:
• An introductory/refresher course on Rules for Archival Description (RAD), the Canadian archival descriptive standard
• Hands-on training in how to add archival descriptions to ARC-ANLA
Workshop participants will also learn how to edit their institution’s entry in the associated database of provincial archival institutions.

Fees: Members: $25 (Institutions must be ANLA members in order to add descriptions to the database.)

Some financial assistance for transportation costs is available for members: please contact the ANLA office for more information.

Registration deadline: February 24, 2014
