The summer school "Digital Archives. Data Literacy and Presentation strategies in Audiovisual Archives" is a 5-day, practice-oriented educational offer directed at staff members of audiovisual archives who would like to enhance their knowledge about digital environments and processes.

The ongoing process of digitalisation presents film archives with the necessity of changing their workflows, strategies, and policies and of providing their staff with additional training. For this reason, the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF decided to establish the "Digital Archives" Summer School in collaboration with FIAF and the FIAF Cataloguing and Documentation Commission, and the Deutsche Kinemathek. The first edition focuses on the subject of data literacy and presentation strategies. The concept was developed by Dr. Adelheid Heftberger, Jürgen Keiper and Prof. Dr. Chris Wahl from an initial idea by Adelheid Heftberger.
