CARA Fall 2009 Meeting Announcement

As many of you have heard by now that Archivists’ Toolkit and Archon have received a grant from the Mellon Foundation to work together to create a single content management program for archives. Due to this decision, the CARA Board decided to cancel the format for the September 24th program.

After consultation with interested parties, CARA will host an information meeting on Archival Content Management Systems at Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL either on

TUESDAY – September 22nd - 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
THURSDAY – September 24th - 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.

David Malone, the Head of Wheaton College Special Collections will discuss the functions of using a archival content management program, what it can do for you, outlining the choice of Archon and finally showing how the Archon system has been applied at Wheaton. David comes with a lot of experience in this area and I am sure many would find his program beneficial.

The cost of the program would be $10 a person to cover our expenses. The fee could be paid at the door.

We need to know ASAP if you would like to attend on Tuesday or Thursday session and a formal program will be announced Tuesday, after Labor Day.
