Annual General Meeting 2014

AGM Schedule 2014 | AGM Agenda 2014 | Registration

Please join us for the Council of Archives New Brunswick AGM 2014 on May 23rd, 2014 in the meeting room at the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick (23 Dineen Drive; UNB – Fredericton Campus).



Workshop Information: 

The AGM will begin at 9:00 a.m., followed by a workshop on CANB’s new web-based, open-source database of archival descriptions, CANBArchives. The workshop will be led by Samantha Read, CANB’s new Archives Advisor, and Amanda Tomé, CANB’s Member-at-Large.


The session is intended as an introduction to CANBArchives and the ICA-AtoM platform. It will provide participants with an opportunity to refresh their archival description skills and to learn how CANBArchives can serve as an in-house management tool for institutional descriptions, while at the same time providing greater public access to archival holdings.


Members are asked to please bring a short archival description (including an administrative history/biographical sketch) and a scanned/digitized archival record associated with that collection, if it’s available. Please contact the Archives Advisor if you have questions about this. The workshops will take place in a computer lab at Gillan Hall (D108) on the UNB campus.


Workshop topics will include:  

  • Overview of the CANBArchives website
  • Logging In
  • Editing Repository information and profile
  • Browsing and searching for archival descriptions
  • Adding and editing authority records
  • Adding and editing archival descriptions
  • Adding digital objects

** You may preview the CANBArchives database if you like: . Please note that the database is still a work in progress, so there may still be errors and corrections to be made leading up to the AGM.
