EAP REGIONAL HUBS NETWORK
EAP is working with a network of regional hubs to co-create and deliver a series of online and onsite training opportunities for institutions, researchers, archivists, librarians and anyone interested in protecting archival material at risk.
To date, EAP has set up five regional EAP hubs across the globe, which serve as a focal point for regional outreach and training tailored to each region’s needs and interests:
- EAP Asia Hub at the School of Cultural Texts and Records at Jadavpur University
- EAP Africa Hub at the National University of Lesotho
- EAP Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Hub at the American University in Beirut
- EAP Latin-American Hub at the Instituto Riva-Agüero at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú
- EAP Caribbean Hub at the University of the West Indies, Mona
EAP webinars and events
To date, we have organised workshops in collections care, conservation, digitisation and digital preservation across all hubs and we have also organised webinars on how to apply to EAP, audio preservation, cataloguing and metadata.
