Reflecting the findings from the evaluation exercise, this strategy will focus on delivering four key areas of work: capacity building, advocacy, discovery and enrichment.

Capacity building

This area of work will provide archivists with the tools they require to improve the management of digital records. We view capacity building as a collective endeavour that through working together with partners across the wider archive sector will help build digital capacity. It will also provide the sector with training and guidance that will enable archivists to develop and broaden their digital preservation skills and knowledge.


This area of work will empower archivists to digitally engage with the communities they serve and to help them advocate digital archiving best practice to key decision-makers in their organisations.


This area of work will help archives to enable their users to find and access digital archive collections.


This area of work will help archives to unlock their potential to enhance and enrich our society intellectually, economically and culturally.
