Reference During COVID

May 6, 2021 | 2:00 pm Eastern | Register Now

At the start of the pandemic, many archives were shut down or moved to reduced public service hours that impacted their ability to handle research requests. A year later, many archives are still closed to the public or are operating under unusual conditions, but archivists are still finding ways to help researchers.

Join staff members from several units of the National Archives and Records Administration and from the Alabama Department of Archives and History as they discuss the services they've been able to provide to researchers during the pandemic, what changes they've made in their processes, what they've learned along the way that might affect future services.

Shop Talk with APPX - Managing Archival Holdings with AXAEM

May 13, 2021 | 3:00 pm Eastern | Register Now

In our two previous ShopTalks, APPX Software has discussed how the AXAEM Archives Management System can be used to manage State Agencies that periodically transfer records to the State Archives and Records Center and how related Record Schedules can be managed and maintained. In this webinar, we will discuss how AXAEM can be used to manage permanent holdings. We will demonstrate how a variety of media types including paper, microfilm, and digital media can be Accessioned, Stored, Processed, Catalogued, and, if necessary, Deaccessioned. AXAEM can help manage and control every step of the records preservation and storage process. Equally important, AXAEM facilitates public access to holdings with a searchable online web catalog, searchable records indexes, and dynamically created and updated finding aids.
