Join the UMD College of Information Studies Center for Archival Futures for an in-person SNACSchool training.

This is the official training program of the Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC) platform. SNAC is a cooperative platform that aggregates archival finding aids, making collections searchable across institutions, and across the world.

NARA archivists and SNAC Liaisons Jerry Simmons and Dina Herbert will lead an in-person half-day training in SNAC. We are very lucky to be partnering with SNAC to offer this training live for UMD students, staff, and faculty.

Attendees will get a refresher on some core concepts (a.k.a. authority control, metadata standards), learn how to edit a historical figure, and link them to archival resources across the world.

SNACSchool will take place in person on Friday, September 23 from 9am-12:30pm with a short break. Come early for free breakfast starting at 8:30am!
