SRMA will be hosting several DAS Classes along the Front Range and broadcasting DAS webinars throughout 2017. You must be a SRMA member to participate. See http://www.srmarchivists.org/about-us/membership/ on how to become a SRMA member.
The current schedule is as follows (and is subject to minor changes as necessary):
2017 Educational Development and Classes
|April 21st||Class||Building Advocacy and Support for Digital Archives|
|May 16th;||Class||Preserving Digital Archives|
The webinars are being purchased by SRMA for presentation to SRMA members. We will be broadcasting the webinars through a secure Google Hangout/YouTube channel, only once. You do not need to be pursuing the DAS certificate to register for and view the webinar. If you are pursuing the DAS certificate, there will be instructions for purchasing the webinar exam through SAA for DAS credit. Note that these webinars normally run $139 apiece, so this quite a deal for SRMA members to get access for free.
We are working to secure funding to defray the cost of class registration for SRMA members. Once we have secured funding the new cost breakdown will be announced. If your institution or organization has a means to achieve this end, or is interested in hosting space for classes, please contact Adam Speirs (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 303-688-7733.
The cost breakdown for classes without a funding discount will be as follows:
Digital Forensics: Fundamentals / Digital Curation: Fundamentals / Digital Repositories:
SAA Member: $205 / $265
Employees of Member Institutions: $235 / $295
Nonmember: $265 / $325
Arrangement and Description of Electronic Records I and II (Two days)
SAA Member: $305 / $375
Employees of Member Institutions: $345 / $415
Nonmember: $405 / $465
The classes will be made available for registration on the SAA website (Currently Scheduled DAS Courses) once the date and location details are confirmed.
We hope this gives you enough information to work from as you plan your continuing education for 2017. We would like to continue hosting classes and webinars (and not just DAS) in 2018 and beyond, so keep please keep SRMA in mind when planning future continuing education budgets.
