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 foundational course on standards as a stepping stone to courses that focus on and/or incorporate specific standards for particular archival functions and the applications of those standards, including accession, arrangement and description, access, preservation, and outreach. This course covers a range of national and international approaches, from those promulgated by standards setting bodies to those generated by de facto practices.

  • Explain how standards are created and the different standards creating bodies.
