Adam Girard Berlin workshop 2022 1200

The five-day, practice-oriented program entitled Digital Archives Summer School focused on the challenges of managing digital media assets in an archival context. It brought together professionals from archival institutions as near as continental Europe, and as far as South America, Asia, and the Middle East.

Presentations given as part of the Summer School covered a wide array of topics. These included:

  • digitisation workflows;
  • digital curation and preservation;
  • linked open data.

The skills and experiences gained at the workshop will be a boon to ITMA as more digital materials are acquired.

Adam wishes to express his gratitude to the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) and ITMA for making this opportunity possible.
