CCA - Archival Appraisal Working Group


The Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) is launching a new initiative to study institutional approaches to archival appraisal of private acquisitions and their subsequent impact on monetary appraisal and donor relations. Over the course of the upcoming year, CCA will undertake consultations with archival institutions to identify issues of professional practice and sustainability, including questions related to the increasing presence of born-digital records. These consultations will lead to a colloquium (or invitational meeting) to be held in 2017 where stakeholders can collectively address challenges, reaffirm principles, and recommend areas for revitalization.
