About the Web Seminar

Do you know the most important standards a digital archivist needs to know?  What are the options, which ones apply to your work, what are the benefits, and what is practical for your particular situation?

Get started with this foundation on standards as a stepping stone to courses that focus and discuss in more detail specific standards for particular archival functions and the applications of those standards, including accession, arrangement and description, access, and outreach.
