In advance of the department’s conversion of their legacy finding aids, ICFA staff also produced a workflow to help guide staff to the system. The Workflow provides step-by-step instructions on how to develop new collections in ICA-AtoM based on existing Word finding aids, and is intended to be used in conjunction with the Guide, a more comprehensive reference resource for description.
Readers can find links to the Guide on the ICFA website under “About ICFA & Services” and the AtoM@DO Helppage. The Workflow is available upon request.
ICFA would like to thank both the University of Maryland and the Benson Ford Research Center for providing useful models for our Guide.
