Hello,

Has anyone tried or thought of adding Local Contexts Labels or Notices to their archival descriptions in AtoM?

I see that there is an ArchivesSpace plug-in for adding them, but I couldn't find anything like that for AtoM.

I'm wondering how that might look like.

Hi Maryna, 

Great question! This topic has come up a few times before, but unfortunately there is no current plugin or add-on that I know of to support such labels in AtoM at this time, nor have I seen any creative implementations in the wild. I would personally LOVE to see something like this supported in AtoM, and I think adding such support is vital to the future direction of the project. That said, at this time I am not aware of any development plans already in the works to develop such a feature.

Cheers,

Hi Dan and All,

I just wanted to share a quick update on this, in case anyone finds it useful. At the University of Alberta Archives, we have started adding Open to Collaborate Notices to our archival descriptions using a low-tech approach: by adding the OTC Notice image and text to the credits note field of the description. One example is here: https://discoverarchives.library.ualberta.ca/diane-l-persson-fonds We also add "Indigenous peoples" as a topical subject access point, and we linked that subject to a simple page Local Contexts which allows browsing archival descriptions with the Open to Collaborate Notice.

Cheers,
Maryna

Thank you so much for sharing this example Maryna! It's really great to see a low-tech solution in action, which can serve as a model for others interested in a similar approach.
