Transforming Archives and History in the Digital Era

In a rapidly changing electronic age, archivists must learn to preserve and provide long-term access to materials and also learn to create, present, and archive history online. This seminar explores digitization as a means of preserving traditional archival materials; students may also create a digital archive and learn preservation techniques for various types of digital media (textual, image sound, moving images, and web sites); and examine the unique challenges posed by electronic records, including copyright issues, and digital asset management.
