Digital Preservation Awards 2016 – Scottish Council on Archives wins NCDD Award for Teaching and Communications

Release Date: 1 December 2016

The Scottish Council on Archives is very proud to have won the NCDD Award for Teaching and Communications at this year's Digital Preservation Awards.

We were recognised for our Opening Up Scotland's Archives Skills for the Future Programme, and are delighted to share the award with the National Archives' sister progamme, Transforming Archives.

The Skills for the Future programme is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and we would like to thank them for their support over the last three years. We would also like to thank our other partners: CAIS of the University of Dundee and the ARA.

The programme would not be the success it is without the enthusiasm and hardwork of our trainees, past and present, and their hosts, and we share the award with them.
