Archival Appraisal Webinar

Archival appraisal is the foundation for building collections of long-term historical value. Careful selection of material for permanent retention ensures that institutional resources support only those holdings that meet acquisition criteria and contribute to the documentary heritage. Decisions leading to what is kept have immense consequences for how histories are written, and lie at the heart of archival professional practice. 

The Canadian Council of Archives webinar on Archival Appraisal will provide an introduction to appraisal strategies and the elements of an archival appraisal report. As archivists, our decisions are informed by the principles and tools of current practice. The archival appraisal report not only records what informed the selection process, but also leaves an essential trace of what was eliminated so that future generations of researchers can judge those decisions. This webinar also compliments the content of the NAAB Bootcamp.

ACDPS Webinar
The ARCHIVESCANADA Digital Preservation Service (ACDPS) offers institutions of all sizes access to a digital preservation service maintained in an optimized technological environment. Governed through CCA, participating institutions are able to preserve small or large digital collections using open-source, standards-compliant Archivematica and AtoM tools. 

 

CCA and Artefactual Systems are pleased to offer an informational webinar for those curious about how ACDPS could help them better preserve their digital content. We intend to offer these sessions monthly.

 

The webinar will introduce participants to the features of the service and offer a brief demonstration of the software. There will be time for questions and answers. The webinar will be conducted in English; however, CCA staff will be available to provide assistance to participants that would like to ask questions in French.

Preserve and Protect: Archives Security Webinar

Has a researcher ever walked out of your institution with a document in their pocket? 
What measures can you take to protect your records with increasingly limited human and financial resources?

Most archives and special collections libraries are experiencing operational challenges, and as a result the physical security of collections against theft or vandalism can become a troublesome concern. Security is a fundamental, integral component of archival management that is in part tied to appraisal, arrangement and description, reference and preservation. Protection of records include: deterrents to theft; identification of missing items; environmental control; protection from fire, flood and other disasters; safe exhibition and loan procedures; and insurance for valuable items.

The Canadian Council of Archives webinar on Archival Security will provide an introduction to risk assessment, policies and procedures to minimize risks and prevent loss of records, security training for staff, security systems and equipment and crisis management.

Instructor: Iona McCraith
Iona is the AAO Archives Advisor (since May 2013) and since 1999 has also maintained a private practice as a preservation consultant and archival materials conservator.
