Building your institution’s archival processing checklist for digital records

This workshop will provide practical guidance and advice for building a checklist for the archival processing of digital records. The session will include an overview of the checklist tool developed by Library and Archives Canada (LAC) staff working on the Prime Minister Papers Project. The tool is used to assess acquired digital records, and to think through processing steps requiring further research, consultation, and/or the use of specialized software/tools. Walking away from the workshop, participants will have the building blocks for developing and nuancing their institution's tools for digital archival projects. 

This workshop aims to:

  • Provide a starting framework for starting your digital processing project.
  • Develop skills to help you anticipate potential digital processing issues.
  • Develop skills to help analyze digital processing workflows, including assessing strengths and weaknesses in existing processes.
  • Learn from fellow workshop participants who have experience processing digital records, and have the opportunity to share the tools used or developed to respond to project needs.
