As digital records proliferate, organisations face increasing pressure to manage their digital archives to comply with statutory and business requirements. These digital archives play a vital role in safeguarding our records: national, regional and local; business and public; social, cultural and scientific; and personal.

To support organisations, the eArchiving Initiative provides specifications, tools and reference software based on international standards for describing, transmitting and preserving digital data.

eArchiving Training

The training will take the form of webinars, face-to-face training sessions and a library of standalone multilingual training resources. Training will target digital archiving skills encompassing short, medium and long-term preservation, concentrating on the E-ARK tools and standards. 

Take a look and get the materials of the eArchiving training sessions on the eArchiving webinars website and the recordings of the past sessions to know more.

eArchiving Curriculum

The academic curriculum will complement the industry-based training, with the focus on Masters courses. The curriculum will be released and presented soon. Whether you are beginning your eArchiving journey or are a more advanced user, there is something here for you!

If you have any questions or comments about this page, or eArchiving in general, please visit the eArchiving Initiative support desk.
