Kussmann and Prom introduce you to processing strategies that are applicable to born-digital records, with an emphasis on basic concepts that archivists use to establish descriptive control over digital content. You’ll learn about standards and tools that can be used to implement an integrated processing strategy, and you’ll participate in a set of instructor–led exercises to arrange and describe some electronic records in ways that maintain the integrity and authenticity of the digital records. (See Tuesday, July 25, for Part 2.)

Pre-conference Course fees are in addition to conference fees. See the conference registration form for more information.
