Workshop Description:

Increasingly, archival records are created in electronic formats. As a
result, archives of all types need to be responsible for the
preservation of electronic records. After a review of the fundamental
principles of archival appraisal and appraisal policies, you’ll be
introduced to the unique issues that need to be addressed when
appraising electronic records. Case studies will highlight the practical
aspects of appraisal when dealing with electronic records.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

* Develop an appraisal policy for your archives.
* Include electronic records on records retention and disposal schedules.
* Address technical issues (such as metadata, software dependence,
etc.) that arise when appraising electronic records.
* Appraise electronic records for your archives.

Who should attend?Archivist practitioners, records managers, anyone
responsible for the archival appraisal of electronic records.

What should you know already?Archival appraisal of records, as well as
some basic knowledge about digital preservation and electronic records.

Attendance limited to 28.
