Archival Workshop

Archives Online

It's all about choices

28 Apr 2016 at 1:00pm

Vienna, Austria

The workshop aims to present, deepen and expand the knowledge and skills related to financial institutions’ online archives. This content gives strategic advice for  planning and implementing  online archive projects to archivists and records managers.

The workshop will examine three aspects:

1) How to choose which information to provide online,

2) how to meet users’ expectations,

3) how to publish and disseminate data online.

A practical LAB session will close the workshop.

The training is free for eabh members and carries a minimal charge for non-members.

Please note that this program is subject to change. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
