Workshop - Digital Preservation for Digital Collaboratives

Digital Preservation for Digital Collaboratives

This workshop is designed to give existing digital collaboratives the expertise they need to develop their digital preservation programs. The workshop includes an initial day of online instruction followed by two days of in-person instruction.

The multi-day workshop will include an introduction to digital preservation before focusing on planning, assessment and digital preservation options. Following the workshop, participants will receive support in completing their preservation plans.

For more information, see:

The workshop will consist of online and in-person components. The online component will comprise three two-hr webinars, while the in-person component will take place over two days.

The online sessions will be held April 13, 14, 16, 2010 from 1:00-3:00 ET. Dates and times for the in-person component are listed below.

Who Should Attend
This workshop is designed for digital collaboratives with existing digital collections that have not yet implemented a long-term preservation option. The workshop will provide the information and tools needed to proceed with developing a preservation plan.

Because the collaborative will develop the plan as a team, we recommend that several representatives attend the workshop. A collaborative’s team could include the director or project manager, technology manager, digital librarian, and one or more representatives from partner organizations. Collaboratives sending more than one staff member to the training will receive a discount of $25.00/registrant off the registration fee listed below.

Note: If you are attending as part of a collaborative team, include the name of the collaborative in the comment box on the online registration form.

The digital collaboratives can be state-based, regionally-based, or subject-based collaboratives looking to develop digital preservation plans and options for their digital collections.
