Biographical Historical Note Review
All parts of this job, prior to the actual update of the biog/hist note can be completed with public facing access to OU's instance of ArchivesSpace: archives.libraries.ou.edu
What is a Biographical Historical note? Read about it on the National Archives Catalog
You will be assigned a group of collections from the ArchivesSpace-Ingest-Finding-Aids-2020 Google spreadsheet
The only column you will have access to modify is the "Biog/Hist Note Review" column
Navigate to the collection you are working on at archives.libraries.ou.edu to find and read the current biographical/historical note (if one exists)
- Propose changes to the biog/hist note based on your research by copying the current text into a text editor (if any exists), making modifications, and then copying the new proposed scope note into the "Proposed Biog/Hist" column in the Google Spreadsheet
- Alternatively, propose that the biog/hist note is sufficient as is with "as is"
- Once you've completed these tasks for a collection, mark the "Biog/Hist Note Review" column as complete with your iniitals and move on to the next collection that's been assigned to you.
- Notify Jackie or Lina once you've completed a full group of collections so that they can review your work, update the collection records in ArchivesSpace as needed, and assign you a new group of collections
