Community-Driven Archives: Digital Preservation Workshop

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The goal of this project is to design and pilot a Digital Preservation Workshop that educates and
empowers individuals who have been historically underserved and excluded from Arizona
archives and memory. Funds will be used to hire staff (Project Archivist and Project Assistant)
for a year and purchase equipment (external hard drives) that will be given to participants in an
Archive Starter Kit. Community members will benefit because they will learn digital skills and
how to appraise, arrange, describe, and preserve their digital archives.
