Increasingly, archival records are created in electronic formats. As a result, archives of all types need to be responsible for the preservation of electronic records. After a review of the fundamental principles of archival appraisal and appraisal policies, you’ll be introduced to the unique issues that need to be addressed when appraising electronic records. Case studies will highlight the practical aspects of appraisal when dealing with electronic records.

Upon completing this course you’ll be able to:

  • Develop an appraisal policy for your archives.
  • Include electronic records on records retention and disposal schedules.
  • Address technical issues (such as metadata, software dependence, etc.) that arise when appraising electronic records.
