As the official archive for the ATE community, we work closely with projects and centers to collect and store the curriculum, professional development materials, videos, and other digital content created with ATE funding. It’s important to us that the process of archiving these valuable deliverables is as seamless as possible for grantees. To that end, we’ve recently introduced a few new archiving resources to help as you think through the archiving process.
For instance, last month we launched a new archive submission form to simplify the archiving process. The form is a quick and easy way to upload the materials you’ve created directly to the ATE Central site. Each request is reviewed, processed, and published by ATE Central staff, and best of all, you can keep track of your past and current archiving requests, all via your ATE Central user account.
This month, the ATE Central team published a new archiving guide designed to aid you in archiving your deliverables with ATE Central. The guide features tools to help project and center PIs with the planning process, developing workflows, and submitting resources via the archive submission form. There are also a number of examples to help PIs and their staff along the way.
Your thoughts and feedback on the archiving services we offer are always welcome; so please, drop us a line or speak to us in person at this year’s National ATE PI Conference in Washington DC (Oct. 26-28)!
Whether you’re just beginning to think about archiving your project or center’s deliverables, have already developed a plan, or have submitted your materials to ATE Central, the PI Conference is the perfect time to connect with us, share your experiences, and seek support. You’re more than welcome to drop by our showcase booth (Wed.-Fri.), set up an in-person meeting via the ATE PI app, or attend our Birds of a Feather session, Beyond the RFP Requirement: Strategies for Archiving with ATE Central (Thurs., Oct. 27 @ 2:30pm), as we share information about the archiving service and explore best practices and lessons learned. Participants will craft initial archiving plans or update existing plans with the help of our staff, discuss workflow strategies, and more!
As always, I look forward to seeing so many of you in Washington DC. In the meantime, please visit the ATE Central portal for more information on our archiving service or contact me directly at email@example.com.
