NCompass Live: New Statistical Standard for Public Services in Archives and Special Collections - Recorded Online Session 


How do researchers engage with special collections? Over the past three years, the Society of American Archivists and Association for College and Research Libraries have been teaming up to create, for the first time, a statistical standard to enable to archival repositories and special collections libraries to assess the services they provide their users according to common definitions. This webinar will provide you with an opportunity learn about the standard, and to provide the task force charged with its development vital feedback on the final stages of its drafting.

Christian Dupont (Boston College), Emilie Hardman (Harvard University), and Amy Schindler (University of Nebraska at Omaha) will review the task force’s most recent draft, which has benefited from important community feedback over the past few months. The task force is currently seeking comments on version 2 of the proposed new standard for archival repositories and special collections libraries.

Participants are encouraged to preview the proposed "Standardized Statistical Measures and Metrics for Public Services in Archival Repositories and Special Collections Libraries" in advance of the live webinar. The document is available on the SAA website and RBMS website.
