In 2003, a working group at nestor began to determine the trustworthiness of digital archives in more detail. The first results were the "nestor Criteria Catalogue for Trustworthy Digital Archives" (2006, second version 2008) and the "DIN standard 31644 - Criteria for Trustworthy Digital Archives" (2012). Since 2014, nestor has offered a procedure of extended self-evaluation based on the latter and awards the nestor Seal. Today, the "Explanatory notes on the nestor Seal for Trustworthy Digital Archives" are available in six languages.

The workshop will ask whether the expectations have been met. The results of a survey conducted in 2021 will be presented. Afterwards, the workshop will examine the situation in the other countries that have translated the Explanatory notes into their languages, concluding with a discussion on future perspectives.

The event will take place at the German National Library as a face-to-face event. Conference languages are German and English. Unfortunately, simultaneous translation cannot be provided.

Please visit the nestor website to find out more about the programme.

Participation is free of charge.
