We’re excited to be attending the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) Conference in New York City February 25 through March 1, 2018. This is Atlas Systems first time at this conference. Please let us know if you plan to be there—we’d love to see some friendly faces while taking advantage of the opportunity to spread the word about Aeon.
Heading down to Florida for the Resource Sharing Conference? Us too! Come see Stephanie, John, Kevin, and Jennifer while you're there. On the 14th in Room 8 from 10-11AM, join Stephanie and Jennifer for their presentation "Maximum ILLiad".
"Let ILLiad do the work! Please join Jennifer Cella Johns and Stephanie Spires of Atlas Systems to discuss some of ILLiad’s best features for automated processing and time-saving workflows. We’ll cover system & email routing, support for OCLC Direct Request, email and print templates for efficient processing and customer communication, Electronic Delivery Trusted Sender, OCLC IFM support, add-on options, and more."
We will be all over the conference! We're friendly, and we love to talk and answer questions.

Planning to attend the MAC Annual Meeting March 21-23 in Chicago? Please stop by to chat with Katie Gillespie on the vendor floor. She will be there to talk to you about Aeon and ArchivesSpace and the ways in which Atlas Systems is working with the special collections and archives community. We now have more than 70 institutions using Aeon and continue to add to the number of institutions we’re helping with ArchivesSpace hosting and implementation.
In case you missed the news, we introduced a free Aeon addon for integrating the ArchivesSpace staff interface into the Aeon Client request form so staff can search the records of their ArchivesSpace instance and import details into Aeon requests. Want to know more about this? Ask Katie!
See you in Chicago!
Atlas Systems hosted our first Makerspace event at our headquarters in Virginia Beach on March 13, 2017.

More details will follow but for now, save the date for the next Makerspace!
WHAT: Atlas Systems Makerspace 2018
WHEN: April 25-26, 2018
WHERE: Atlas Systems HQ, Virginia Beach, VA

From Penn State Symposium website -
Every intersection tells a story, what’s yours?
Please join us August 6 – August 8, 2017 for an interactive and engaging symposium “Intersections: Technology and Public Services in Special Collections Symposium” at the Penn State University campus in University Park, PA.
Engage at the intersection of your institution’s awareness of need and responsive action!
Public services are the most visible part of any archives or special collections library, but also depend upon the efficient functioning of other essential operations.
The 2017 Intersections symposium builds on its predecessors (the Aeon Symposium at Yale in 2015 and at the University of Michigan in 2016). However, this iteration expands on what it means to provide access to collections in the archives and special collections environment. Though Aeon, remains a key tool, partner, and product of focus, Intersections also includes other workflows, tools, partners, and products that are present in our daily work.This symposium also aligns and incorporates many of the key components of the RBMS and SAA’s Metrics and Assessment Task Force report to broach broader topics with regard to assessing impact via meaningful metrics. Please join us for this exploration of how technology, assessment, and public service intersect to support discovery and access of cultural heritage collections. Public service special collections professionals truly work at the intersection of where technology meets end-users’ needs. Colleagues with an interest in public services in the special collections world are invited to attend, regardless of the tools locally used.
