Today we published three new guides that will help staff at participating stations navigate the Archival Management System (AMS), view records in the AMS, and edit descriptions for digitized media. The guides include:
- Using the AMS for the first time: this guide provides an overview of the functionality of the AMS and helps users navigate it to find the records they are looking for
- Viewing records in the AMS: this guide describes the differences between the asset metadata and instantiation (copy) metadata and how to locate each type of information within a record
- Editing records in the AMS: here you can find instructions for editing records, as well as suggestions and examples on how to enhance the descriptions of your stations’ digitized media
You can also find links to all of the guides here: http://americanarchive.org/guides/.This post was written by Casey Davis, American Archive Project Manager at WGBH.
