On November 4th, as part of the celebrations for World Digital Preservation Day, ICA launched its 4th online training course “Managing Digital Archives”. The course provides a thorough grounding in the management of archives in digital format, from selection and ingest, description and metadata management, to preservation techniques and access provision. It aims to provide learners with the knowledge to develop the infrastructure to manage their digital archives now and to provide contemporary access, as well as preserve them over time to ensure their survival and access in future.
The course features 9 sections, with the main sections focusing on collecting, ingest, preservation, infrastructure, access and stewardship. Together these sections amount to a total of 60 hours. Learning materials provided for each section include video presentations background texts and/or presentation scripts, exercises, quizzes, resources lists and additional resources where ICA has the rights. There are also presentations on special topics and demonstration videos for some sections. This course is available in English and French.
