    You’re invited to the ACA Hashtag Party! On the last Thursday of every month, the ACA Social Media Team organizes a hashtag party, which takes place virtually on Facebook, Instagram, and X (formerly Twitter). There is a different theme for each month, which we announce on social media and Arcan-l in advance. On the day of the party, you can share materials in your collections related to that theme, tag us and use the hashtag, and we’ll re-share your post. The goal of the parties is to engage more with institutions across Canada, see what kinds of materials other institutions have, and promote weird, fun, and interesting items from your own collections.

    The ACA Hashtag Party will take a pause in December to give our volunteers a break, but we’re excited to host you again in the new year! The first few dates and themes for 2024 ACA Hashtag Parties will be as follows:

    • January 25, 2024: ArchivesScience
    • February 29, 2024: ArchivesBlackHistory
    • March 28, 2024: ArchivesFeast
    • April 25, 2024: ArchivesVolunteers

    Keep an eye on future issues of Scope and Content and on all our social media accounts to learn more about what we’re interested in for each of these themes! 

    For any questions, or if you have initiatives that you would like the ACA Hashtag Party to support, please email us at communications@archivists.ca.

    You are cordially invited to a free online lecture (7 March 2024 at 12 p.m. EST): “Kwaskastahsowin” (“put things to right”): Conciliation in the McClelland & Stewart and E. Pauline Johnson Collections. 

     

    In the updated and restored 2019 edition of Halfbreed, Métis writer Maria Campbell introduces the Cree word, kwaskastahsowin, to describe what it means to seek conciliation or to “put things to right.” By focusing on what it means to “put things to right” in the context of twentieth-century publishing in Canada, this talk explores Campbell’s definition of kwaskastahsowin in relation to two key twentieth century works of Indigenous women’s writing in Canada: E. Pauline Johnson’s Legends of Vancouver (1911) and Maria Campbell’s Halfbreed (1973). Specifically, Dr. Alix Shield examines how materials found in McMaster University’s Archives and Research Collections present opportunities to shift away from colonial publishing narratives and instead “put things to right” for both Indigenous-authored texts. 

     

    Dr. Alix Shield is a settler scholar and lecturer in the Department of Indigenous Studies at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC, Canada). She recently published an updated edition of E. Pauline Johnson's Legends of Vancouver – retitled Legends of the Capilano – with the University of Manitoba Press and members of the Skwxwú7mesh Nation. 

     

    This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Rick Monture. Dr. Monture is a member of the Mohawk nation, Turtle clan, from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. He is Associate Professor in the Departments of Indigenous Studies and English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University and the author of Teionkwakhashion Tsi Niionkwariho:ten (“We Share Our Matters”): Two Centuries of Writing and Resistance at Six Nations of the Grand River (UMP 2014). 

     

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

    While the MASIS group has been quiet we have still been holding meetings and events and we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to let the co-Chairs know what types of or topics for meetings would encourage you to participate in future MASIS virtual meet-ups.

     

    Topics and ideas for future meeting that were discussed at our Fall get together included:

    • Where does your archive live in your organization (i.e. as a part of corporate services, Information Services, Clerk’s division, etc.) and how that helps and / or provides challenges for you,
    • Origin stories of how your municipal archives program came to exist,
    • What are you equipment needs and how easy / what are the challenges to getting what you need,
    • Archive Access vs Privacy,
    • Digital archiving,
    • Larger municipality issues and concerns vs small municipal archive issues and concerns,
    • Government accessions vs. private,
    • What supports do you get and where are they lacking, and
    • Friends of societies

     

    If folks have other ideas or some topic ideas listed resonate more than others we encourage you to email either Jamie Sanford (MASIS.Chair1@archivists.ca) or Angela Fornelli (MASIS.Chair2@archivists.ca) to let us know.

    Open Refine Workshop

    Digitization can provide far greater access to archival documents, but their discoverability via full text searches may be hampered by error-laden optical character recognition (OCR). Correcting them manually is unrealistically time-consuming but there are tools that can help! In this workshop, we will use OpenRefine – a spreadsheet-like software often used for creating or editing metadata – to accelerate the finding and correction of spelling errors introduced through the OCR process.

    Bio

    Devon Mordell has a Master of Archival Studies from the University of British Columbia and currently works as an educational developer at McMaster University after several years in digital archiving roles. She teaches workshops on digital scholarship topics such as online exhibit creation and computational text analysis, and has presented internationally on archives as data.
