Description: In May 2019, the Canadian Council of Archives’ National Accession Standard Working group finalized its Canadian Archival Accession Information Standard. The standard provides information elements for archivists to use in the accessioning process. The workshop walks participants through the standard and explains what information to include in each information element. The presenter will discuss the rationale and use of each field. There will be a brief discussion on the history and making of the CAAIS and a short discussion on other standards and how they can come together.  At the end of the course, participants should feel confident in their understanding of the accession standard and will have the tools to use the standard in their archival practice.
