SESSION 701 - It's All About the Items: Digital Objects and Aggregations in Archival Description and Access

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Archival content standards provide clear guidance to archives for the arrangement and description of provenance-based aggregations of archival records. These standards, however, fail to provide the level of granularity and technical specificity required for the description, management, and use of individual digital items. The presenters consider theoretical challenges and practical solutions to implementing item-level description, management, and access under Describing Archives: A Content Standard, the Canadian Rules for Archival Description, and according to social media data management principles.
