Introduction to AtoM: Describing Archival Material in Libraries, Archives, and Museums
This workshop will provide students with an overview of the AtoM (Access to Memory) archival management platform. AtoM is a web-based, open source application for standards-based archival description and access in a multilingual, multi-repository environment (https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/). The workshop will cover use cases for selecting AtoM as an archival management platform, how AtoM is used at the University of Toronto, and an overview of how to use AtoM to describe archival materials.
By attending this session, students will learn:
- What AtoM is
- When it makes sense to use an archival management platform like AtoM
- How to use AtoM to describe archival materials
