The A*CENSUS II Working Group will work with our survey research consultants to design, field, and report out on the second iteration of Archival Census and Education Needs Survey in the United States (A*CENSUS). The three-year project, from September 2020 to February 2023, is being funded by a National Leadership Project Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The Working Group is responsible for 1) reviewing and discussing previous survey instruments and findings to determine what information should be captured to enable longitudinal analyses, 2) identifying new areas of interest for incorporation into the survey, 3) developing thematic areas of interest for a new survey of archival institutions, and 4) assisting in identification of groups and institutions that should be invited to participate in the survey.
