Once the UAAD series was completed and instituted for the departmental staff, preparations began for the Understanding Archives and Special Collections (UASC) tutorials.
Based on the experience with UAAD, the authors hoped that using the UASC videos would shift the focus of instruction sessions.
The use of the UAAD tutorial series has allowed us to standardize application of descriptive standards, and improved training on the tools used in the department's processing workflow.
The need to update the UAAD tutorial videos has forced us to confront the issue of the long-term sustainability of the project.
