The project will deal with the skills gap between the better developed archives and those which are less well resourced. It will establish a working group, undertake an audit of expertise, organise a workshop for CESSDA members and draft a report based on the results of the audit and the workshop.

The aim is to extend the CESSDA network, in terms of membership, professionalism and skills and in terms of associations with similar organisations. The precise differences between CESSDA archives will be examined to identify the gaps (both technical and organisational) that will need to be filled to bring all organisations (both existing members and those which may seek to join at a later stage) to a common standard. This work will be complemented by the development of a self–assessment tool which will enable for all archives to measure their conformance with the OAIS Reference Model. The combined effect of this work will be to raise standards within the community.
