Next week, ATE Central will be hosting an exciting new webinar on the importance of digital archiving for the ATE Community. On May 24th at 1pm EDT, Rachael Bower and Kendra Bouda will discuss what digital archiving is, why archiving benefits ATE, and how ATE Central can help with your project or center’s archiving efforts. Whether you’re just getting started with ATE, or you’ve been part of the community for a while, this webinar will provide you with helpful information about sustaining your deliverables beyond the life of your ATE funding.
If you’re planning on tuning in, or wondering if you should, these five questions offer a sneak peek at the type of material that will be covered:
What is an archive?
- An archive is a collection of materials – often comprised of primary source documents – that has been preserved for its enduring value. For ATE, the Archive is a virtual space where deliverables and select administrative documents are collected, stored, and made available in digital format.
