Introduction to Archives (LIBR 2015)
See the Schedule section below
Records have a life cycle: active, semi-active and inactive. What happens to records at the end of their life cycle? If they are deemed valuable for long-term retention, they go to an archive. This course will introduce learners to the functions of archives, including how records are acquired, organized, preserved and made accessible to users; the types of records acquired; issues in managing archives and sharing archival material; and how archives relate to other information management organizations.
Pre-requisite: High School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.
