     The Earthly Paradise: Recent Botanical Acquisitions  McMaster University Library

    You are cordially invited to a free virtual lecture: 20 April 2023 at 12 pm EST / 9:00 am PST

    Register using this link. Please feel free to share this invitation with other interested parties.  

    The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw a dizzying proliferation of new European books on botany. Driven by interrelated sociopolitical, aesthetic, intellectual, and technological developments, the era was a golden age for sumptuous and lavishly illustrated tomes addressing every conceivable plant-related subject — pharmacology, taxonomy, horticulture, and sylviculture among them. In a heady environment rife with innovation, political and religious controversy, and outright plagiarism, creators and collectors collaborated and competed to take the study and appreciation of plants to new heights — and new audiences. 

    In recent years, McMaster University Library has acquired several significant works in this tradition, including early editions of Gerard’s Herball, John Parkinson’s Theatrum Botanicum and Paradisi in Sole, Ulisse Aldrovandi’s Natural History, Castore Durante’s Herbario Nuovo, John Evelyn’s Sylva, and a scarce English translation of the Amsterdam Pharmacopoeia. 

    Join Myron Groover, McMaster’s Archives and Rare Books Librarian, for an intimate look at these stunning artefacts and the contexts in which they were created. 

    This lecture is hosted by McMaster University Library’s Archives Alive program in partnership with McMaster University Alumni.

    Community archiving

    Special Interest Section for Archives of Religious Organizations

    The Society of American Archivists defines a community archives as “documentation of a group of people that share common interests, and social, cultural and historical heritage, usually created by members of the group being documented and maintained outside of traditional archives.”

    Join the Association of Canadian Archivists – Special Interest Section for Archives of Religious Organizations for a panel discussion on community archives.

    Date: Thursday, May 25, 3:00 pm EST/EDT

    The Archives:

    • The Toronto Information Network for Independent Music Co-operative (TINI Music Co-op)
    • Nature London
    • Madonna House
    • Anglican Diocese of Huron parishes
    • Catholic Women’s League

    The Panelists:

    Simon Patrick Rogers is the special collections archivist at the John M. Kelly Library at the University of St. Michael’s College and a founding member of the TINI Music Co-op, a community archiving project to promote DIY archival documentation and information resources for Toronto area musicians, archivists and music enthusiasts. He has published numerous articles on diverse topics including archives, municipal history and architecture, music, literature, and the field of monetary appraisal.

    Long-time naturalists Winifred and David Wake have been the volunteer archivists for Nature London since 2006.  A registered charity with no paid employees, the 500-member club has roots going back to 1864.  The archive was established in 1966 and now holds the equivalent of about 20 banker’s boxes of material.  Winifred and David continue to learn as they work to establish the archive on a more professional footing and seek ways to accommodate digital holdings.

    Dez Nacario is the Archivist for the Huron Diocese of the Anglican Church in Canada. The V.M. Cronyn Memorial Archives collects records from churches, parishioners, clergy, and from the Synod activities of the Diocese of Huron. The collection encompasses over 200 churches, both active and inactive, across Southwestern Ontario from the early 1800s to present day. While churches are responsible for the care of their active records, Canon Law compels them to send records of historic value to the Archives for safekeeping and to make them available to interested researchers.

    Kathy McVady was born in Chicago and came to Madonna House in 1966, making Promises in 1968.  Most of her apostolic life was spent in a Madonna House mission house in Winslow, AZ, and in Barbados, West Indies.  During that time, she learned from a distance what field houses needed to provide for the ongoing work at Madonna House Archives, and when she was reassigned to Combermere in 2015, she began working at St. Sergius Archives, becoming the Department Head in 2016. 

    Kathleen Winter was born in Dublin, Ireland and came to Canada as a young child.  She has been active in the Catholic Women’s League serving as Secretary and President of St. Bonaventure Council of the Catholic Women’s League and on Calgary Diocesan Council as Resolutions, Education and Health, Spiritual Development Chairpersons and President Elect and Organization. In 2015 she started cataloguing the Catholic Women’s League records at the Calgary Catholic Pastoral Center.

          Introduction to Archival Digital Accessibility

          Pre-Conference Workshop

          Today, more than ever before, those who work with archival digital materials rely on websites, images, PDF documents, audio, and video, to connect with researchers and the public.

          Lowering barriers to make digital materials more accessible is crucial for the one out of five Canadians, who identify as having disabilities. As well, some of the 1.3 billion people worldwide may also be using Canadian archival digital materials.

          There is also provincial and Federal accessibility and human rights legislation across Canada that may require many of us working with archival digital materials, to identify and lower barriers for people with disabilities.

          Lowering barriers makes access easier and more inclusive, and provides a sense of belonging for those of us who have disabilities.

          In this workshop, learn the basics on how to start identifying and lowering barriers. The first part of the workshop will focus on 'why' digital accessibility is important for people with disabilities, and what legislation may apply to your work. This will include information on who may be accessing your digital materials, and what technologies may be used. There will be one or two live demonstrations of some popular technologies.

          The second part of the workshop will focus on the basics of the 'what' and 'how'. You will learn practical tips that can be used right away, to help make digital materials more accessible and inclusive. The workshop is geared to a beginner and intermediate audience. No technical expertise is required, just have an interest in the subject.

          What You Will Learn:

          • How digital barriers impact people with a wide range of disabilities.
          • The basics of accessibility and human rights legislation in Canada, and how it may impact your work with archival digital materials.
          • What kinds of software and hardware people may use to access your archival digital materials, with at least one live demonstration.
          • Practical tips, and some tools, to help you to start identifying and removing barriers to make your archival digital materials more accessible.
          • Hands-on exercises to practice some of the tips, so you can apply your knowledge right away to identify and lower barriers in your digital materials.


          • Introductions-10 minutes
          • Part 1: Different disabilities, legislation, technologies with live demo- 40 minutes
          • Part 1 Interaction: Questions will be asked about each area, so some discussion will take place.
          • Break-10 minutes
          • Part 2: Practical Tips-50 minutes
          • Part 2 Interaction: In each tip area, examples will be shown, we will work through them, and solo, or group, exercises will be provided for most tip areas.
          • Question Period-10 minutes
          • Question Period Interaction: Attendees will ask questions, and discussion will take place.
          Please note: This workshop will take place in person and using Zoom. The session will be recorded and accessible for 7 (days) to participants.

          ACA 2023 - Belonging - Considering archival bonds and disconnects

          Pre-Conference Workshop

          “Artificial Intelligence and Archives: the I Trust AI Research Project.”

          When: June 28, 2023, Delta PEI Charlottetown

          Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM AT

          Capacity: 50 participants

          The ongoing availability, accessibility, and trustworthiness of public records is under threat, due to sociotechnical changes that have left our public institutions staggering under an overwhelming abundance, complexity, and lack of control of records. Without automated means of processing, we will increasingly lose control of public records, and ultimately, the public will lose trust in archives. However, implementing automated solutions - especially Artificial Intelligence solutions - raises a whole new set of costs and risks, from the expenses involved in implementing systems, to the risks of privacy breach, bias and discrimination, and loss of discretion.

          This workshop will explain the fundamental ideas on which AI is based, discuss types of AI tools available, and identify both the advantages and issues presented by their use on records and archives. It will then outline the way the new InterPARES project, I Trust AI, aims to determine how the records and archives community can develop its own AI tools based on archival principles, and leverage them to support society's demand for trustworthy public records. Finally, it will present some of the studies that are being carried out by the I Trust AI researchers, and their outcomes to date, and will involve the workshop participants in the analysis and discussion of such outcomes.

          • Muhammad Abdul Mageed and Peter Sullivan will explain types of AI systems and tools.
          • Luciana Duranti will present what kind of tools are needed by the profession vs those that have been used to date, and the reasons why the 5th phase of the InterPARES project will be necessary.
          • Corinne Rogers will discuss the structure of the I Trust AI project and, with Peter Sullivan, provide an overview of the studies in progress
          • Tracey Lauriault will discuss two I Trust AI case studies about the preservation of digital twins and smart grids
          • The participants will be divided in 4 groups, each chaired by one of the speakers, to discuss the studies and propose additional studies
          • The participants will rejoin to discuss the new proposals

          Learning Outcomes

          The participants will learn to:

          • recognize different types of AI tools
          • identify the type of tool needed for different archival functions and activities
          • assess the conditions required for the use of AI tools (e.g. amount of terabytes of digitized material)
          • understand what is feasible and what is not
          • learn what current research is being done on the use of AI in archives
          Workshop Instructors

          Muhammad Abdul-Mageed is Canada Research Chair in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.
