Call: Edit-a-thon of SNAC Records Related to North American Anthropology and Archaeology - Spring of 2020

16 Dec 2019 1:08 PM | Rachael Woody (Administrator)

Dear colleagues,

We’re planning an edit-a-thon of SNAC records related to North American anthropology and archaeology for the spring of 2020. We welcome individuals working with archival material in these fields, and anyone else interested, to participate. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of SNAC.

For more information, and to fill out a brief survey about participating, visit: https://forms.gle/m61N8CHBCJTpoLGn7 

Goals of this edit-a-thon

1. Facilitate access to archival material that has been dispersed to multiple repositories.

2. Create more and fuller records for Indigenous people and any other historically unrecognized individuals in these fields.

3. Facilitate knowledge sharing of related archival material through a community effort.

What is SNAC?

From the SNAC website: “SNAC is a free, online resource that helps users discover biographical and historical information about persons, families, and organizations that created or are documented in historical resources (primary source documents) and their connections to one another. Users can locate archival collections and related resources held at cultural heritage institutions around the world.”

Project structure and participation options

The edit-a-thon will be in Spring 2020 (exact dates TBD). Participants will have SNAC training sometime in January-March 2020. Both the training and edit-a-thon can be done remotely.

For those not able or interested in doing SNAC training or the edit-a-thon, contributing to a list of records to be edited or enhanced by others would be equally valuable. Please fill out this brief survey if you are interested in participating at any level: https://forms.gle/m61N8CHBCJTpoLGn7

Participating in any capacity is unpaid - if this represents a hardship for you, or makes it impossible for you to participate, let us know in the survey feedback section so we can address it in further planning stages.
