The Digital Preservation Coalition is pleased to announce that registration is now open for a new Novice to Know-How course “Providing Access to Preserved Digital Content”.

Part of The National Archives’ digital capacity building strategy, ‘Plugged In, Powered Up,’ the Novice to Know-How learning pathway aims to provide beginners with the skills required to develop and implement simple digital preservation workflows within their organisation.

The new course on "Providing Access to Preserved Digital Content" aims to provide learners with an understanding of the broad range of issues to be considered when providing access, as well as the ability to implement simple access provisions. By the end of the course, learners will also have gained the skills needed to achieve level one of The Born-Digital Levels of Access, and the basic-level requirements of the Discovery and Access section of the DPC’s Rapid Assessment Model. The course includes modules on User Needs Analysis, Accessibility, Resource Discovery, Managing IPR, Setting-Up an Access Workstation, and more.

The course will be integrated into the main learning pathway for those registering for the April 2021 intake onwards. It will also be available as a stand-alone course for those who completed the original learning pathway prior to April and wish to “top-up” their learning, or for those specifically interested in the topic of providing access but do not want to complete the full learning pathway.

As with the original learning pathway, priority places are available for learners from the UK Archives Sector or DPC Members. Registration is now open for April, May, and June.
