It’s been a busy few months at Artefactual as we’ve traveled to conferences and celebrated World Digital Preservation Day. Here’s a round up of what we got up to this year!
In April we made our first conference trip close to home at the AABC Conference in Victoria. Maaike Bos talked about the role of our Maintainers Team and our recent work to improve AtoM by using Bootstrap5. BS5 enables significant accessibility and responsiveness improvements over previous AtoM versions.
We continued our journey at the Association of Records and Archives (ARA) Conference in Belfast, where we connected with old and new friends.
Chief Archivist Kelly Stewart shared about Artefactual’s approach to business and environmental sustainability, and Jenn Roberts turned the lens on Artefactual’s own history by presenting on the development of our sticker culture.
One of our oldest stickers And one of our newest!
Our next stop was Salamanca, Spain, for the DLM Forum Triennial Conference, where Justin shared about how Enduro is the next evolution of Archivematica, with new developments in security, modular design, and lightweight function.
We also shared information about our various offerings at our booth – you can watch them now too from the comfort of your own computer!
Along the way, we also covered a lot of virtual ground. Justin joined the National Archives of Malaysia World Digital Preservation Day, and spoke at the Kenya Association of Records Managers and Archivists Conference a week later about how Artefactual works to uphold key principles of digital preservation.
It wasn’t all digital access and preservation presentations, though – we had some fun too! We debuted our AAG (Artefactual Acronym Game) at iPres and took it on the road to Spain and the UAE, along with holding a virtual game for World Digital Preservation Day.
We’re so grateful for the connections we’ve made at these different events, conferences, and games, and we are excited to build on these relationships in the new year.
