510 - Challenge Accepted: Building Access Infrastructure for 400+ Years and 1000+ Creators at NYC Municipal Archives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For the first time in decades, NYC Municipal Archives is newly addressing legacy issues to provide access to more than 400 years of records. Challenged with the complexities of government, we've struggled to maintain the balance between function and provenance. To provide access and context, we've established a historical ontology within ArchivesSpace of NYC government creators and traced them to their modern-day Record Group equivalents. Join us for a special session sharing our process.
