CAIN Database Revision Project

In the autumn of 2002, Queen's University Archives was fortunate to obtain funding to revise descriptions of fonds and collections. Through a Canadian Council of Archives CAIN grant, the Archives was able to hire an archivist to work from September to December. Ken Willmott joined the Archives for this project, having completed a contract at Queen's Law Library. While here, he was able to revise over 600 fonds-level descriptions in preparation for submission to ARCHEION, the Ontario component of the Canadian Archival Information Network, now renamed Archives Canada. This was the very first submission of descriptions to ARCHEION.
