There are a few spaces remaining in our upcoming Core Course, Learning RAD with MemoryNS!
We describe our archival records and create finding aids so that researchers can more easily access our archival holdings. Many Canadian archivists use the Canadian standard, Rules for Archival Description – known as RAD – for creating descriptions. This course introduces and explains the rules of RAD. It also explains how the internet and online portals like MemoryNS and AtoM (which is the basis of MemoryNS) changed how we use RAD today: it has become what some call ‘RAD-ish’. Through lectures, in-class activities including adding content to MemoryNS, students will learn the practical uses of RAD in descriptions and finding aids.
The course is taught by our MemoryNS Support Specialist, Lisa Snider, across four afternoons from June 20-22 + 24 (Monday to Wednesday + Friday – our AGM is on Thursday afternoon).
