    ACA Announcement

    Announcement #1:

    This past September, the Board received the sad news that our amazing Director-at-Large, James Roussain, was resigning from his ACA Board position effective Oct. 1, 2022 due to a significant increase to his work portfolio.

    On behalf of the Board of Directors and membership, I want to say Thank You James – your time, energy and brilliant contributions served to enhance our Association during your term and you will be missed.

    Guiding Protocol:

    With a vacant position in Office, the Board was guided by Article 5.10 of the ACA’s By-Law No. 1 which states:

    5.10 Vacancies.Subject to Section 5.9, a vacancy on the Board may be filled for the remainder of the term by a qualified individual by Ordinary Resolution of the Directors. Notwithstanding the above, if there is not a quorum of Directors or if a vacancy results from either (a) an increase in the number or change to the minimum or maximum number of Directors provided in the Articles or (b) a failure to elect the number or minimum number of Directors provided in the Articles, the Directors then in office shall call a special meeting of Members to fill the vacancy and, if they fail to call a meeting or if there are no Directors then in office, the meeting may be called by any Member.

    The Board reached out to the Nominations and Awards Committee (NAAC) for assistance in identifying an ACA member in good standing who would be willing to serve out the remainder of James Roussain’s 7.5 month term on the Board up until the next ACA Annual General Meeting on June 14, 2023. This leads me to my second announcement.

    Announcement #2:

    In accordance with section 5.10 of By-Law No. 1, the Board has approved the appointment of Amanda Oliver to the position of Director-at-Large 3 effective Oct. 31, 2022. Amanda’s term will extend until June 14, 2023 at which time a member vote will determine an official incumbent to this position.

    Please join me in welcoming Amanda to the ACA Board! With her previous experience both on the ACA Board and on various committees, we are confident she will be able to pick up where James’ left off without any trouble.

    If members have any questions with this process of appointment, please do not hesitate to email myself, or any member of the Board, as we’d be happy to speak to your concerns.

    Warmest regards,

    Erica Hernández-Read, M.A.S.

    BACKGROUND

    UNESCO Archivist and fellow Canadian, Eng Sengsavang, has been tirelessly advocating for this family since first receiving his email asking for help last August. She could not publish any information about the archivist or his family on the Go Fund Me page because it goes against Canadian sponsorship rules, however, she invited me to share the following information with you:

    "Eshaq Yaqubi is an archivist with 7 years of experience in archival restoration and conservation in various departments of the former Afghan government, including the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Culture and Information, the National Archives, and the Presidential Palace Archives. He has been featured in the Kabul Times and Tolo News for his work on major digitization projects digitizing historical manuscripts, documents, and films at both the Afghanistan National Archives and the Presidential Palace Archives. He and his family are members of the historically persecuted Hazara ethnic and Shiite religious minority groups."

    On behalf of the ACA Board of Directors, I want to ask you to please consider contributing to a GO FUND ME campaign for a fellow archivist who, along with his family, had to flee from Kabul out of fear for their lives after the Taliban takeover of August 2021. For the past year, this family has been living in a “humanitarian village” desperately trying to obtain refugee status and entry into a country of asylum so they could finally rebuild their lives and find peace again. Unfortunately, the Kafkaesque bureaucratic environment of their current ‘host’ country has so far prevented them from obtaining refugee status which has dramatically hindered their emigration efforts. Thankfully the Canadian Government’s new, year long immigration program allows Afghan refugees to apply for Canadian residency through the Canadian Group of 5 Sponsorship Program even if they do not have UNHCR refugee status. This is a rare opportunity that provides hope for this desperate family. However, there are still program conditions and only the first 3,000 applicants will be accepted AND there is still the $50,000 fund required to be in place to support this family upon entry.

    This is where we need your help.

    I know times are financially tough, but anything you can contribute will truly help this young family find peace and healing within a country with freedoms we so often take for granted. Let’s welcome our colleague into the Canadian archival fold and support the healing and flourishing of him and his family.

    Thank you so much for your consideration!

    Yours in archival solidarity,

    ACA 2023: Belonging - Considering archival bonds and disconnects


    City: Charlottetown

    Dates: June 28 to July 1, 2023 at the Delta Hotels by Marriott, Prince Edward Island

    A sense of belonging is a fundamental human need – as the story of Anne of Green Gables, PEI’s most famous (fictional) daughter, so vividly demonstrates. As peoples of many regions, ages, faiths, genders, abilities, sexualities, racialized or ethnic backgrounds, we want to see ourselves, our stories, and our experiences reflected in the historical memory of the many environments to which we feel we belong.  Archivists and archival practitioners now realize how many aspects of archival work contribute to peoples’ experiences of inclusion and exclusion in a community. Through our actions towards historical memory, people may or may not see their stories and experiences reflected, leaving them with feelings of belonging or disconnection, or at worst exclusion.

    The 2023 ACA Program Team invites proposals that reflect on the theme of “Belonging” from the perspectives of archival theory and practice, related disciplines and professions, and/or diverse lived experiences of archives, records, and memory work.  What does ‘belonging' or conversely, ‘not belonging’ mean to you within your archival context or experience?

    Topics could include (but are not limited to):

    • Where does this profession belong? What disconnects exist between archivists, records managers, and/or IT professionals, and how can these be overcome? How are archival associations, councils, members, and associated organizations and communities working together in new ways?
    • To whom do records belong? To the archives? To creators? To documented people/communities? To everyone? Who has stakes in the records and how are those understood/articulated/acted on?
    • Whose experiences belong in archival records and collections?
    • What groups of people or organizations are not well represented in archival collections? What impact do archival collections and/or exhibits connected with marginalized populations have on these groups’ sense of belonging in an institution, community, region, or nation?
    • How are existing and emerging technologies changing arrangement, description, access, and use in ways that encourage or discourage a sense of belonging for patrons or staff? What are some innovative practices or projects that can cultivate a sense of belonging?
    • What steps are being taken to develop a more diverse workforce? What kind of work has been effective in creating spaces of belonging? What barriers still must be overcome?
    • How are archival services being made more inclusive for staff and users? How can archival spaces, services, practices, etc., be transformed so that more people feel like they belong in physical and virtual spaces? How do we relate to individuals or groups who do not want to ‘belong’ to the spaces archivists construct?
    • How are new archivists transitioning into the profession? In what ways are archival workplaces and/or the archival community welcoming or otherwise? How does one figure out where they belong in the profession at any stage of their career?
    • How can the desire to belong lead to practices shared between individuals and communities?
    SUBMITTING PROPOSALS:

    The 2023 Conference Program Team invites contributions, of either a practical and/or
    theoretical nature, in a variety of formats including:

    1. Traditional session: formal presentation of papers; approximately 20 minutes per speaker, with questions to follow as time allows.
    2. Panel discussion: abbreviated presentation of papers; approximately 10-15 minutes per speaker, with discussion to follow.
    3. Roundtable: brief 5-7-minute presentations with open discussion.
    4. Focused Debate on a specific topic: brief presentations with open discussion & debate to follow.
    5. Archival Book Club: Moderators select readings for discussion at the session; could also include creative elements like debate or voting for preferred works, as in the CBC’s “Canada Reads” broadcast.
    6. Sprint Session: Is there a challenge that could be solved by a group of people in a short-term, time-bound exercise? What could you accomplish with a set amount of time, a hive mind, and no distractions?
    7. Fishbowl session: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishbowl_(conversation)
    8. Storytelling session
    9. Other: Please share your ideas – be creative!

    Use the “Call for Submissions” button on the ACA website at https://archivists.ca/ACA-2023-Belonging-Call-for-Submissions.

    Submitting your session proposal in electronic form using this link is strongly encouraged.

    You are cordially invited to a free upcoming virtual lecture (6 October, 12 p.m. EST): Devils, Angels, Scoundrels, Fortunes, and Fables: British Eighteenth-Century Chapbooks at McMaster University Library.

    Join Gillian Dunks (McMaster's Archives Arrangement & Description Librarian) in appreciation and exploration of the chapbook, an oft-profane and beauteous genre of British print. From the sixteenth to early nineteenth centuries, inexpensive chapbooks proliferated in Europe, particularly England. Popular amongst children, the working poor, and people who left few other records of their lives behind, chapbooks featured a wide range of subjects: tales of scoundrels, tips on fortune telling, and shortened versions of medieval romances. McMaster is fortunate to hold many English chapbooks from the eighteenth century, when the format reached its height.

    This lecture is part of our ongoing Archives Alive series. This series of public-facing talks about our collections is jointly hosted by the William Ready Division of Archives & Research Collections and McMaster University Alumni.

    Chèr-e-s collègues, dear colleagues,

    We would like to invite neurodivergent gallery, library, archives, and museum workers to the Neuro-GLAM-orous Canada Discord server<https://discord.gg/ba75yKY6>. The server is a place for neurodivergent GLAM workers in Canada (and our non-Canadian friends!) to share their interests, experiences, and support.

    Some tentative projects in the works are a Neuro-GLAM-orous Canada annual virtual meeting and a subgroup dedicated to making sure that neurodivergent GLAM workers' labour and accessibility needs are met and our human rights are respected.

    Bien que pour l'instant la plupart des message soient en anglais, les francophones sont présents et nous espérons que vous vous joindrez à nous pour enrichir la conversation.

    Dear ARCAN-L community members,

    We have exciting news!  The National Archival Appraisal Board (NAAB) is very pleased to announce the launch of the Database of Archives’ Values (DAV) to archival institutions.  Subscriptions for Canadian archival institutions are available for the yearly fee of $300 (+GST), and $400 CAD for international archival institutions.

    DAV is an online research tool created by the National Archival Appraisal Board (NAAB) in partnership with the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA). Development was funded in part by the Council of Provincial and Territorial Archivists (CPTA). The purpose of DAV is to provide access to sales (market) information and purchases of archival materials by archives across Canada. Reputable dealer listings (values) may also be included, as well as relevant international market information.

    Currently, DAV contains over 1250 records of archival values. We would like to sincerely thank our participating archives, who contributed 422 of those sales precedents from their own archival purchase records. At this time, 75% of the entries on DAV document archival values at the item level, while the remaining 25% of DAV records describe purchases of archival files, collections and fonds.

    To subscribe to DAV, please fill out the subscription form at the following link: https://form.jotform.com/221575029968063. Within two business days of receiving your completed form, we will send you your unique login and password. Please contact NAAB@archivescanada.ca if you have questions or issues.

    ** Please note that only approved archival institutions will have access to DAV, and use will be closely monitored and audited by the Canadian Council of Archives. ** We invite subscribers to increase the usefulness of DAV for the Canadian Archival System by contributing any sales precedents known to you or your institution. By adding more values to this knowledge-sharing tool, you will be helping your archival colleagues during work on NAAB panels, for in-house appraisals at their own institution, or to assist your fellow archival institutions in their acquisition activities.

    In order to access and contribute to DAV, all subscribers are required to adhere to the access and information policies of DAV and attest that any information that they contribute to the database must be true to the best of their knowledge and no conflict of interest exists. Any false, misleading or unsubstantiated entries whether intentionally or unintentionally designed to affect or manipulate market conditions will disqualify the contributor and result in their access privileges being forfeited, temporarily or permanently, as determined by the NAAB Board of Directors.

    We hope you will find this tool helpful and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback!

    Sincerely,

    Christina Nichols

    Chers membres de la communauté ARCAN-L,

    Nous avons de bonnes nouvelles !  Le Conseil national d'évaluation des archives (CNÉA) est très heureux d'annoncer le lancement de la Base de données de valeurs d’archives (BVA) aux institutions d'archives.  Les abonnements pour les institutions d'archives canadiennes sont disponibles au coût annuel de 300 $ (+TPS), et de 400 $ CAD pour les institutions d'archives internationales.

    La BVA est un outil de recherche en ligne mis au point par le Conseil national d’évaluation des archives (CNÉA) en collaboration avec le Conseil canadien des archives (CCA). Son développement a été financé en partie par le Conseil des archivistes provinciaux et territoriaux (CAPT). Cette base de données contient des détails sur les ventes (valeur marchande) et les achats de documents d’archives par des centres d’archives canadiens. Des inscriptions (valeurs) de commerçants de renom peuvent également y figurer ainsi que de l’information pertinente de marchés internationaux.

    Actuellement, la BVA contient plus de 1250 entrées de valeurs d'archives. Nous tenons à remercier sincèrement les archives participantes qui ont fourni 422 de ces précédents de vente provenant de leurs propres dossiers d'acquisitions d'archives. À l'heure actuelle, 75 % des entrées dans la BVA documentent des valeurs archivistiques au niveau de la pièce, tandis que les 25 % restants décrivent des achats de dossiers, de collections et de fonds d'archives.

    Pour vous inscrire à la BVA, veuillez remplir le formulaire suivant https://form.jotform.com/221575029968063. Dans les deux jours ouvrables suivant la réception de votre formulaire rempli, nous vous enverrons votre identifiant et votre mot de passe uniques. Veuillez contacter NAAB@archivescanada.ca si vous avez des questions ou des problèmes.

    ** Veuillez noter que seules les institutions d'archives approuvées auront accès à la BVA, et que l'utilisation sera étroitement surveillée et vérifiée par le Conseil canadien des archives. ** Nous invitons les abonnés à contribuer tout précédent de vente connu par vous ou votre institution afin d’enrichir l'utilité de la BVA pour le système archivistique canadien. En ajoutant plus de valeurs à cet outil de partage des connaissances, vous aiderez vos collègues archivistes lors de leur travail au sein des panels du CNÉA, lors des évaluations internes de leur propre institution, ou pour soutenir vos collègues dans leurs activités d'acquisition d’archives.

    Afin d’accéder et de contribuer à la BVA, les abonnés doivent s’engager à respecter les politiques en matière d’accès et d’information de BVA, et confirmer que l’information saisie dans la base de données est, à leur connaissance, exacte et qu’il n’existe pas de conflit d’intérêts. Tous les renseignements faux, trompeurs ou non corroborés, fournis intentionnellement ou non dans le but d’affecter ou de manipuler les conditions du marché́, feront en sorte que le contributeur en question soit disqualifié et que ses privilèges d’accès soient révoqués, temporairement ou en permanence, tel que le déterminera le conseil d’administration du CNÉA.

    Nous espérons que vous trouverez cet outil utile et nous sommes impatients d'entendre vos commentaires !

    Sincèrement,

    Christina Nichols

    Canada’s Reconciliation Framework: Reflections and Advocacy Across Borders

    July 13, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm UTC

    Hosted by the Native American Archives Section of the Society of American Archivists & Archival Education and Research Institute

    Abstract

    In late February 2022, the Response to the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Taskforce (TRC-TF) of the Steering Committee on Canada’s Archives (SCCA) released its Reconciliation Framework. This report was the result of over five years of SSHRC-funded research, relationship building, and collaboration across Canada between representatives of the Canadian archival community and Indigenous heritage professionals and practitioners. The Framework provides direction, through recommendations for action, to be taken by Canadian archivists who are ready to embark upon their own personal and professional journey towards reconciliation through respectful relationship building with Indigenous communities represented in their repositories. The Framework also serves to reinforce and support First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities’ intellectual sovereignty over records by, or about them, and encourages the reconceptualization of mainstream archival theory, practice and education. This webinar will feature five members of the Taskforce, who will describe the process of developing the Reconciliation Framework, an introduction to the Framework itself and the next steps in their work. In our discussion and Q&A, members of the SAA hope to generate a discussion about how American archival and community colleagues might work together with Canadian colleagues on advancing Indigenous archival policies across these professional and national borders.

    This Register recognizes significant documentary heritage related to Canada and its peoples and is one of the vehicles of the UNESCO Memory of the World Program which aims at preserving and providing access to documentary heritage as the embodiment of the memory of humanity.

    In recognition of the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent 2015-2024 and the upcoming Decade of Indigenous Languages CCUNESCO extends a special call for documentary heritage related to Black Canadians with the goal of increasing awareness of this community’s diverse cultures, history, and contributions to Canadian society. Documentary heritage submissions include photography, art, audiovisual, artifacts and even unique objects.

    CCUNESCO continues to extend a special call for proposals for documentary heritage related to Indigenous languages and cultures. Many are considered to be endangered, and their preservation, strengthening and revitalization are of crucial importance to Indigenous peoples and to Canadian society.

    We invite all individuals, private or public institutions, organizations and communities to consult CCUNESCO’s website for more information on this process <https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.ccunesco.ca%2Four-themes%2Fprotecting-heritage-and-biosphere%2Fmemory-of-the-world&data=04%7C01%7Czoe.compton%40ccunesco.ca%7C7e5f85f2befb40d94d9f08da1271564f%7Cdc22f593f4374ec79e1c33b95d924361%7C0%7C0%7C637842575228418381%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=3uZwcmc7u2rrU8hmYMSW%2FHjAw8daZrrirryyOKo9thQ%3D&reserved=0>
