MemorySask Instructional Workshop

Standardized Arrangement and Description are two of the key phases when providing intellectual control over and access to archival records. The use of the MemorySask database provides this standardization while allowing access to your institution’s holdings. By providing a template using the Rules for Archival Description (RAD), the Canadian Archival Description Standard, it ensures that the information about your records is consistent and complete so that staff and researchers can understand the creation, organization, and use of the records.

This course will be of particular interest to member institutions who are doing descriptions for archival material, for finding aids and/or entries into MemorySask. This workshop may touch on some ways research can be conducted using MemorySask but will not focus on it.
