ICA is inviting people that work in archives around the world to take part in a short survey on describing and arranging archives.
The survey, designed to take just 10 minutes to complete, will inform ICA’s work on its forthcoming archival description and arrangement course for the ICA’s online learning platform.
“To make sure the that the course is most useful, we want to understand the current practices and tools that are used for archival description around the world,” said Margaret Crockett, ICA Training Officer, “We are particularly keen to receive insights from institutions with limited access to professional tools, training and resources.”
The survey is available in English here: http://bit.ly/describearchives
A French-language version of the survey is available here: http://bit.ly/decrirelesarchives
A Spanish-language version of the survey is available here: https://bit.ly/describirarchivos
All responses will be treated anonymously. If anyone would like to provide contact details for potential further engagement with this work, they are invited to do so at the end of the survey.
The survey in English and French will remain open until 30 April 2020. The survey in Spanish will be open until 10 May 2020.
