        Subject: Dalhousie University Archives adds almost 70, 000 new archival descriptions to its Archives Catalogue and Online Collections


Colleagues,

The Dalhousie University Archives <http://libraries.dal.ca/collection/archives.html> is pleased to announce that nearly 70,000 archival descriptions have recently been added to our Archives Catalogue and Online Collections http://findingaids.library.dal.ca/ . Most of the descriptions were migrated from legacy Microsoft Access databases by Zac Howarth-Schueler, a local metadata expert with considerable experience "cleaning" CSV and XML metadata and performing bulk data migrations into Access to Memory (AtoM) <https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/> software. With this new batch of descriptions, the Archives Catalogue now contains over 237,000 archival descriptions.

Here is a blog post with more information: https://blogs.dal.ca/libraries/2015/12/university-archives-adds-almost-70000-records-to-the-archives-catalogue-and-online-collections/

Questions about the Archives Catalogue can be directed to duasc at dal.ca<mailto:duasc at dal.ca>.

Best regards,

Creighton
