This workshop focuses on how educators can prepare archival practitioners and professionals in low resourced environments to ensure the long-term accessibility and useability of records. The focus will be on determining appropriate methods to teach digital curation using 'affordable' strategies without compromising the reliability and authenticity of digital records. Attention will be paid to the different types of digital records, particularly those that rarely make it to the digital record keeping strategies of many organizations. These include websites, emails and social media records. At the core of the discussions will be issues of preservation, security and accessibility. The goal of the workshop is to establish the digital curation status quo in low resourced environments with the intention of proposing appropriate mechanisms to impart digital curation skills.
Registration closes on Wednesday 2 November, 12:00 CET
