Policies and Practices in Access to Digital Archives: Towards a New Research
and Policy Agenda

The Central European University invite applicants for an intensive one-week
summer session in Budapest from 2 July-6 July, 2012.

This course has been developed to meet the specific needs of established
professionals looking to deepen their impact on policy issues related to
digitital archives. The creation of a diverse coalition of experts is an
envisioned goal of the course.
Practitioners from the field of archives, research, law and policy making are
encouraged to apply.

The course deals with the contemporary complexities of accessibility and the
long-term preservation of archival material within institutional settings. It
will explore the driving/prohibitive role of IPR and various implications of
the regulation of digital material:
Will access to primary sources become the luxury of the few under a new type
of digital divide? Do we have evidential data of the market value of
digitised archival collections? What kind of policy agenda will ensure the
future availability of cultural heritage content? What kind of strategy will
guarantee that archives within the digital European single market are
sustainable? The course will consist of intensive teaching sessions and
participants will be expected to prepare a paper in advance for presentation

Please note that places are limited to 30 participants and offered on a
competitive basis. This summer course is able to offer a limited amount of
grants. Applicants will be asked to explain what their engagement with
archival material is and what particular policy-related issues they consider
most challenging. The deadline for application is February 15, 2012.
