NEA taking the past into the future

NEA's first webinar event

2016-10-25 9:14 AM | Michelle Romero

Join the New England Archivists at the Avon Free Public Library in Avon, Connecticut, for our first webinar event. Meet up with colleagues to watch SAA’s on-demand webinar, “Providing Access to Born Digital Archives,” followed by small group discussions of how to apply the tools and techniques presented in the webinar at your own organization. Light refreshments will be provided. Following the group discussions, attendees will have the option to get lunch on their own and return to the library for a tour of their recently renovated facilities. The tour will include the local history room, art studio for children, and the White Room, a new area that is set to launch with technology for collaborative projects.

If you are seeking your DAS certification, or just want to enhance your understanding of working with born digital records, this webinar viewing and networking event is an opportunity to explore the topic at a greatly reduced rate. For those attendees who wish to take the exam, information will be provided at the event for you. Each exam costs $35.00, payable by the attendee to SAA.

About the webinar, “Providing Access to Born Digital Archives”
For years, archives have focused on creating workflows for the ingest and preservation of born-digital records. Although we have become increasingly comfortable with the SIPs and AIPs of the OAIS model, many of us still struggle with the DIPs and proving access to those materials. This course will focus on the underlying policy consideration in play when providing access to born-digital records as well as provide an overview of methods and tools for providing appropriate access. The course will also demonstrate multiple tools for identifying and redacting sensitive or protected information from born-digital records. This course is primarily focused on born-digital records and will not deal with best practices for digitization projects.
