NEW! EAD to ArchivesSpace Table

In 2024, Olivia Inglin (University of Puget Sound) and the Archival Metadata Harvesting Project Group created an EAD to ArchivesSpace table, which maps elements of EAD to their corresponding fields in ArchivesSpace. The table is intended to help participants with data migration and troubleshooting as they work with Archives West and ArchivesSpace.

ArchivesSpace to Archives West Harvester

The Alliance’s customized OAI-PMH harvester facilitates the interoperability of ArchivesSpace and Archives West. A&M participants who use ArchivesSpace can now harvest a finding aid into Archives West using a simplified process in Archives West Management Tools (a.k.a. “utility site”). The classic finding aid upload process is still available for those who don’t use ASpace.
