Join us for "Standards for Digital Archives," a SAA Digital Archives Specialist course.
Light refreshments provided.
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.

Getting there: With the elevated trains in flux because of Wells Street bridge construction, best train bet is Red Line north- or south-bound. Exit at the Lake Street station; walk one block east on Lake Street, one block north on Wabash Avenue, and a half-block east on Wacker Place, south side of the street. Or, take any bus going north or south on Michigan Avenue and get off at the Michigan/ South Water Street stop 1120 (north-bound) or (south-bound) stop 1104 in front of Walgreens; walk west 1/2 block on Wacker Place on south side of the street.
All guests must sign in with the front desk; you will be going to the 19th floor. Attendant has been notified that there will be guests entering the building for the 19th floor.
This webinar is sponsored by the Chicago Area Archivists (CAA). CAA is offering a series of webinars from the Society of American Archivists’ Digital Archives Specialist curriculum.
