Get in touch[edit]

The Archivematica community discussion list is an open discussion forum for any Archivematica-related topic, including (but not limited to) community organizing, requirements analysis for new and prospective users, workflow configuration, preservation planning, and many more. If you are posting about an error, please include as much information as possible. This means including the following information:

  • The version of Archivematica you have installed
  • The system(s) you're using (Ubuntu, CentOS, which browser, etc.)
  • The content and size of your transfer(s)
  • The task information (click on the cog icon on the same line as the micro-service job where the error occurred) and show arguments data output

For installation issues, include the following information:

  • What version of Archivematica you are installing
  • If you are upgrading or installing fresh
  • If you are using something other than the recommended requirements from our installation instructions
  • Stack traces or results from error logs if possible

You can also find news about the Archivematica project on Twitter at @archivematica.

Case studies[edit]

We'd love to receive narrative case studies from current or prospective Archivematica users. Let the community know how you decided on Archivematica, your path towards digital preservation, and your implementation trials, tribulations, and successes by adding your information to Archivematica Case Studies.

Contribute to the Archivematica project[edit]

Interested in contributing to the Archivematica project? Great! The two main ways that the community can contribute are through code contributions or by filing issues.

Code contributions[edit]

As an open source project, all of Archivematica's code resources are available on Github, where we welcome community contributions. For more information about contributing code to the project, please read the Contributing guidelines, located in the file in the Archivematica repository.

Most of the code in the public Archivematica releases has been written by Artefactual staff, but there is a growing list of community contributors. Check out the list here:

Filing issues[edit]

All issues about any part of the Archivematica project are filed on the Archivematica Issues repository. If you would like to file issues or make comments on existing issues, all you need is a Github account. If you would also like to add labels to issues and edit the Issues repo wiki you can request membership to the Issues-Committers team by filing an issue with the title ‘Request Membership’. We’ll add you to the team and you’ll be able to add labels and edit wiki pages.


Where possible, Artefactual tries to make all non-code resources openly available under a CC-BY-SA license. We strongly encourage re-use of these materials!


Archivematica Camps are intended to provide a space for anyone interested in or currently using Archivematica, to come together, learn about the platform and share their experiences.
