In addition, this course focuses on the advocacy, preservation planning, and policy development necessary to manage digital content far into the future.

Upon completion of this course you’ll have the core information to:

  • Develop a digital curation program;

  • Manage digital content; and

  • Advocate for a program that includes archival content and a standards-based framework to manage it into the future.

Who should attend? Administrators with oversight across the entire archival enterprise of an institution and managers who aspire to be administrators.

What should you already know? Participants are expected to have deep knowledge of archival processes, years of experience, and at least intermediate knowledge of digital archives. This course builds on the DAS course, Digital Curation:Creating an Environment for Success.

The DAS Core Competencies Addressed in this Course:

#2: Communicate and define requirements, roles, and responsibilities related to digital archives to a variety of partners and audiences.
