We are very pleased to announce that ICA’s Digital Records Curation Programme has been selected as the winner for the “Teaching and Communications” category of the Digital Preservation Awards 2020. The award is sponsored by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network. Congratulations to James Lowry, Margaret Crockett and all the volunteers that worked on this programme!

“Over a five year period, an international team of volunteers has developed the Digital Records Curation Programme (DRCP), a set of materials that aims to translate technical digital preservation know-how into easy to use resources for teaching new generations of digital archivists. Responding to calls from African members of the ICA for support in developing university level curricula for digital preservation, the DRCP is an initiative of the ICA’s Africa Programme, which began in 2015.”
