ArchivesSpace is a web-based, open-source, community-supported tool for managing and making accessible archival collections. However, implementing it can seem overwhelming for institutions with limited staff, technological skills, and/or resources. That’s where a consortium can help! In this presentation, we will give a brief overview of ArchivesSpace at the University of Nebraska (NU) system. The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) started using ArchivesSpace four years ago. In 2017, in collaboration with UNO, the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) began implementing ArchivesSpace. This project led to the NU system exploring the options for a deeper collaboration involving all four universities, culminating with the migration of all NU campuses to a single, shared instance of ArchivesSpace under the umbrella of the University of Nebraska Consortium of Libraries.
