Community Archive Scheme Information Session

DRI logo
Monday, October 10, 2022

As a publicly funded repository for Ireland’s social and cultural data DRI believes it is important to make long-term preservation accessible to a wide range of organisations, including those operating on a non-funded, voluntary basis. The Community Archive Scheme is one way that DRI works to help preserve and steward Cultural Heritage, Social Science and Research Data by giving Community Groups with at-risk digital material a route to preservation. This scheme offers associate membership to a no, or low, funded group for the period of time it takes them to ingest a collection  (see benefits aligned with ‘Associate’ level membership on our DRI Membership page.) DRI Membership under the DRI Community Archive Scheme is offered for the period it takes to ingest one collection. 

This 30-minute information session starts at 10.00 am on Monday 10 October and is for anyone interested in applying for the Digital Repository of Ireland's (DRI) Community Archive Scheme. It will explain the benefits of the scheme, how to apply and how applications are judged. The information session will be presented by Lisa Griffith, DRI’s Membership Manager, and there will be plenty of time for questions.
