Doing archives, established 11.20.2013, uses empirical data (not evaluative / opinion) to make the general public and decision-makers aware of the importance of records and archives. This is a persistent (long-tail) data set (lasting more than 25 years / revisions are published each 100 data points). By participating, you offer quantitative data that is useful for establishing comparative rankings. Your answers help define a frontier in archival work, and establish efficient standardization, sponsor favorable legislation and contractual agreements, create training and enhanced skills (for workers and management). The project promotes global evidence-based debates on main issues in the archival field, in this case - the indicator 2013.003 Educating workers.

No personally identifiable information is collected, used or disclosed in this data set.

You may answer these questions based on your (personal) experience, as part of a collaborative team at 1 or many institutions, or as part of any group or class of users.

If you are using these questions as part of an experimental design, forwarding the questions to a set of known users is called "blocking" - the arrangement of experimental units into groups (blocks/lots) consisting of units that are similar to one another. Blocking reduces known but irrelevant sources of variation between units and thus allows greater precision.

Location and educational experience before you took these courses.
Using actual learner, instructor, organizer and alumni data, Doing archives prepares long tail reports on archival education (for example 10 (ten) years tracking archival education). The data sets include fee based online/internet and free (MOOC) courses, and those where people gather at specific times, locations and places (regional/annual meeting locations).

What year did you complete primary education?
Primary (or elementary) education consists of the first 5–7 years of formal, structured education. In general, primary education consists of six or eight years of schooling starting at the age of five or six, although this varies between, and sometimes within, countries. Globally, around 89% of primary-age children are enrolled in primary education.
What year did you complete secondary education?
Secondary education comprises the formal education that occurs during adolescence. It is characterized by transition from the typically compulsory, comprehensive primary education for minors, to the optional, selective tertiary, "post-secondary", or "higher" education (e.g. university, vocational school) for adults. Depending on the system, schools for this period, or a part of it, may be called secondary or high schools, gymnasiums, lyceums, middle schools, colleges, or vocational schools.
What year did you complete tertiary education? *
Higher education, also called tertiary, third stage, or post secondary education, is the non-compulsory educational level that follows the completion of a school providing a secondary education, such as a high school or secondary school. Tertiary education is normally taken to include undergraduate and postgraduate education, as well as vocational education and training. Colleges and universities are the main institutions that provide tertiary education. Collectively, these are sometimes known as tertiary institutions. Tertiary education generally results in the receipt of certificates, diplomas, or academic degrees. Higher education generally involves work towards a degree-level or foundation degree qualification. In most developed countries a high proportion of the population (up to 50%) now enter higher education at some time in their lives.
Do you have a graduate degree in Library or Information Science? *
A Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) is the master's degree that is required for most professional librarian positions in the United States and Canada. The MLIS is a relatively recent degree; an older and still common degree designation for librarians to acquire is the Master of Library Science (MLS), or Master of Science in Library Science (MSLS) degree. The MLIS and MLS degrees are widely considered to be equivalent. In some universities, these degrees are denoted as MLISc or MLSc or MSLS, as in the case of M.S. for MSc. But in most commonwealth universities, both bachelor's program and master's program has been merged to provide MLIS/MLISc degree. Admission to MLIS programs normally requires holding a bachelor's degree in any academic discipline.. In the United Kingdom it is more common for a vocational degree in library and information science to bear the standard designation M.A. or M.Sc.
Digital Archives Specialist Curriculum
This data set is based on a curriculum sponsored by a USA based professional society - the Society of American Archivists - fee based (USD $50 - $300) educational opportunities in 4 (four) tiers. The learner base includes archivist practitioners, archivist managers, archivist administrators working with born digital records / objects.The courseware makes distinctions between "archivist audiences" and "other audiences" (Librarian, Museum Professional, Records Manager, Legal Professional, Web Administrator, IT Professional). This courseware is based on published Guidelines for Archival Continuing Education, see http://bit.ly/19vdcVp
