Foundational Courses

Foundational courses focus on the essential skills that archivists need to manage digital archives. They focus primarily, but not exclusively, on the needs of practitioners (i.e., archivists who are or will be working directly with electronic records). These courses present information that an archivist might implement in the next year.
