To the ArchivesSpace community,
It is with regret that we received notice that Brad Westbrook, ArchivesSpace
Program Manager, wishes to move on to pursue new opportunities after three
years of dedicated service with the ArchivesSpace program. He will be missed.
Brad has worked tirelessly since 2013 to help position ASpace for success in
the community. He was one of the original architects of the Archivists Toolkit
when he was at UCSD, and has been instrumental in bringing the software to
archivists ever since. In his role at ArchivesSpace, he has helped navigate
the myriad issues associated with bringing a new software service to the
community. Brad’s familiar face was often seen at SAA and the many events,
conferences and hackathons that he participated in or led.
Fortunately, Brad will remain in his position for the next six weeks with the
ArchivesSpace program and LYRASIS, the Organizational Home, to help find a
suitable replacement. He will also help in the recruiting and hiring of a tech
While November 30th will be his last day as Program Manager, Brad has kindly
agreed to continue working with ASpace on dedicated projects after that. We
will announce more details on that as specific plans are confirmed.
Laurie Gemmill Arp, Director of Collections Services and Community Supported
Software at the LYRASIS Organizational Home, to whom Brad reports, will work
closely with Brad and Christine Di Bella during this transition to ensure that
commitments are reviewed and kept.
We wish Brad well in his future endeavors.
If there are questions, please feel free to reach out to me, Robert Miller, CEO
of LYRASIS which is the Organizational Home for ASpace
