UNESCO Digital Preservation Initiatives Modules, ICA / IRMT (2015-2016)
The International Council on Archives has published two new training modules on digital preservation. Commissioned by UNESCO and developed in collaboration with the Trust, the modules have been designed to support records professionals in lower resource countries in identifying solutions to challenges they face in managing digital records. The project team has structured the material to take account of the realities of lower resource environments and relate it to existing international good practices; to offer practical examples that users can adapt to their own realities; to provide a practical pathway for moving toward implementation; and to use language that can be understood easily. These are introductory modules and therefore cannot fully address the range of professional issues involved.
Training in Electronic Records Management (2009)
The TERM Programme covers the key concepts involved in managing electronic records. It comprises five hundred pages of training material, including five training modules, a volume of Additional Resources for Electronic Records Management, a Glossary and a set of Good Practice Indicators for Integrating Records Management in ICT Systems. There also are six case studies.

Management of Public Sector Records Study Programme (1999)
The MPSR Programme covers all phases of the records lifecycle, or continuum of records management, as well as the application of these principles and practices to financial, human resource and hospital and court records. The programme comprises about 4000 pages of training material, including 18 teaching/study training modules, case studies, good practice manuals and associated educational materials. While the materials address public sector record-keeping issues, they also are useful for records management in the private sector.
There is a Spanish adaptation, in two volumes, of some of the study material, which is described at the end of this list.
Spanish Adaptation of the Study Programme (2003, 2004)
The University of Montevideo in Uruguay has drawn on the MPSR study programme to produced two volumes of material in Spanish. We are grateful to the National Archives of Uruguay (Archivo General de la Nacion Uruguay), for kind permission to make the Spanish material available free of charge.
