Providing Access to Digital Archives | DAS: Tactical & Strategic | July 14, 2015

Presentation Icon
For years, Archives have focused on creating workflows for the ingest and preservation of born-digital records. While we have become increasingly comfortable with the SIPs and DIPs of the OAIS model, many of us still struggle with the DIPs – proving access to those materials. This webcast 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.

Upon completion of this course, you will:
  • Define a range of access methodologies.
  • Identify how access considerations impact transfer agreements.
  • Assess tools for the identification and redaction of sensitive or protected information.

Who Should Attend:
repository managers, archivists, practitioners, anyone responsible for providing access to born digital archival materials
