Eabh is pleased to announce its next archival workshop
Appraisal in the digital era
Eabh in co-operation with BNP Paribas and Banque Lombard Odier
22 June 2017
This one-day workshop is designed for archivists, records managers and information professionals of financial and public institutions, as well as researchers and users of digital archival material.
The amount of official and unofficial digital records that financial and public organisations produce on a daily basis is monumental. Accurate appraisal of digital records is an integral part of modern day business in general - not only for financial institutions. Accessibility, timely retrieval of crucial documents, contextual understanding and cost savings are only some of the benefits of high quality appraisal policies.
This workshop aims to:
1. Offer practical suggestions on how to successfully capture and select the right digital information and offer strategies in order to avoid non- appraisal.
2. Discuss measures and procedures to implement 'good' appraisal in order to avoid a loss of information because of unsuitable retention policies and practices.
3. Explore disruptive innovations which might change appraisal practices in the long term.
The committee invites proposals from record managers, archivists, tool developers and information professionals. In order to offer practical solutions to the above issues, we particularly welcome submissions describing goals, results and evaluations of ongoing or already implemented projects in the field.
Please send your submissions (a short CV and an abstract of around 500 words) no later than 15 January 2017 to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop committee is formed by
Carmen Hofmann (eabh), Roger Nougaret (BNP Paribas), Hrvoje Stancic (University of Zagreb), Ines van Dijk (De Nederlandsche Bank), Gabriella Massaglia (eabh).
