Digital preservation of archives: experiences and transfer projects 

Organized by SOS Archivi.  

Date and Hour: Tuesday, 7th June 2022 / 17.00 CET 

Language: Italian 

Watch this webinar here: SOS Archivi Youtube channel 

Webinar Summary 

For at least twenty years, digital preservation has been at the center of the initiatives of the Italian legislator, but it is also the subject of standardization interventions at international and European level. In the last decade, custody services have been developed in many countries that comply with regulatory provisions and consistent with the reference standards, in particular with the ISO 14721 (OAIS) standard. 

Among the activities and requirements considered critical, a significant weight is recognized to the quality of the payments of archival documents in the storage deposit. It is on this aspect that the digital talk focuses, with the aim of illustrating the most significant requirements and the most critical issues, comparing some concrete experiences: those carried out in Italy by the Emilia-Romagna Regional Archival Center (ParER), presented by Gabriele Bezzi, and in Europe by the Historical Archives of the European Union, which will be discussed by Samir Musa. Silvia Trani is entrusted with the task of describing the project dedicated to payments to the digital deposit of the Central State Archives. Introduces and moderates Mariella Guercio.

Webinar Summary 

The Latin American Archival Association (ALA) in conjunction with the Judicial Branch of the State of Mexico and the International Council on Archives (ICA), invite the archival community of Ibero-America to join the #ArchivesAreYou Seminar in commemoration of "International Archives Day", where panelists will speak on each of the topics addressed in the social media campaign of the International Council on Archives (ICA) 2022 #ArchivesAreYou: from the voice of archivists, archives represent the professional practice and standards of archivists. We will seek to reflect on how archival practices influence what is inside or outside the "archival document," how our practices reflect professional biases, and how documents impact us with the stories they tell.
