Across three presentations, the NAFAN research team shares an update on their work and preliminary research findings from focus groups interviews with archivists and a pop-up survey of archives users. They also discuss research questions, data collection and analysis methods, and efforts to align methods with project values and principles.
The authors identify and discuss the opportunities and challenges archivists experience when describing archival materials, sharing archival description on the web, and making decisions about whether or not to participate in current finding aid aggregations.
