About the A&D Certificate
The SAA Arrangement & Description certificate program allows archivists to gain more experience and knowledge in this single topic than is generally available in graduate archival programs. This approach provides archivists with extended descriptive training to expand the skill set they gained in graduate school, and it also can facilitate career shifts within the archival field (e.g., moving from public services to processing/cataloging). Taken as a whole, these courses provide an integrated programmatic framework for archivists and others at various levels within their institutions whose areas of practice include arrangement and description.

About the DAS Certificate
SAA is committed to providing education and training to ensure that archivists adopt appropriate practices for appraising, capturing, preserving, and providing access to electronic records. That’s why we’ve developed the Digital Archives Specialist (DAS) Curriculum and Certificate Program, designed to provide you with the information and tools you need to manage the demands of born-digital records. The DAS curriculum, developed by experts in the field of digital archives, is structured in tiers of study that guide you to choose courses based on your specific knowledge, training, and needs. You can choose individual courses—or you can take your learning to the next level by earning a Digital Archives Specialist Certificate from SAA after completing required coursework and passing both course and comprehensive examinations.
