A joint event between the Higher Education Archives Programme, Artefactual Systems and AIM25 on two key open source products: ATOM and Archivematica, used around the world to catalogue and preserve archive descriptions and digital objects. The event will provide a hands-on opportunity to explore both systems with their developers, Artefactual Systems of Canada, to hear the latest news of the software development and feature roadmap for both products and provide the chance for you to provide feedback on the features you would like to see in future. The day will include short presentations from existing users and will also cover associated issues such as digital storage, online publication of content and training. The event is an opportunity to explore these systems ‘warts and all’, for frank debate and for sharing ideas. The workshop might appeal to existing users and those considering adopting them.
