Feedback from Artefactual Training Event
A meeting between the Artefactual team and representatives from the Wits Library, the Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct, and the Wits IT department took place following the 5-day workshops. It addressed possible suggestions coming out of the workshops and areas of concern relating to the WITS AtoM and Archivematica instances.
The meeting also discussed the pilot aggregator project with participating South African institutions, based on an AtoM multi-institutional repository, which is one of the envisaged outcomes from the WITS-NRF Digitisation Capacity Development Initiative. These institutions are already applying archival international standards of description, which will allow linking these institutions’ archival collections. The Tshimologong was approached as a partner for both, technical know-how for the pilot aggregator project and capacity building in the digital archive and library sector.
