NEW! ArchivesSpace to Archives West Harvester

In Spring 2023, the Alliance launched a customized OAI-PMH harvester to facilitate 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.
